National Day of Action
The National Day of Action on the 16th October united Coal Seam Gas groups all across Australia. The first day of National Water Week was chosen as the rally day for maximum impact. Over 10,000 people, in groups from 50 to large rallies of 2000, gathered to show their support for stopping irresponsible mining destroying farm land, precious food resources, underground water systems and natural environment.
SOS Liverpool Plains organised the local event at Willow Tree Park with over 60 community members protesting against CSG. Many travellers called into the stand, with questions about the risks posed by the CSG industry, with concerns about how the NSW Government could jeopardise an area that produces so much food, and put at risk our children’s future environment.
Thanks again to SOS Liverpool Plains for continuing our fight to protect one of Australia’s remaining food bowls, by distributing information on the risks and dangers of coal seam gas extraction.
