Welcome to MCAN, Mullumbimby Community Action Network


MCAN was formed in response to the potential hijacking of our local economy by the globalised Woolworths entering our small town.  Our community was unable to stop them - however they afforded us a brilliant opportunity to become more aware of LOCALISATION, strengthening our economy sustainably, building solidarity and community resilience from the bottom up.
