Agquipped for Action!

SOS Liverpool Plains are at it again at Agquip this week as part of the NSW Farmers stand (G24). Cakes, NO MINE signs and ballons flew off the stand as people signed petitions and sent a postcard-to-the pollies to register their disgust at NSW planning laws and mining companies’ environmental vandalism.
The ladies were thrilled at the response to their informational efforts with many Gunnedahshire residents pledging their support for keeping Australia’s most valuable food bowl as a producer, not a polluter.
Comments from Muswellbrook teenagers were most poignant: “You don’t want mines here, we should know, we get the asthma and are off school so much with sickness”. We don’t want, or need, mines here either. See you at Agquip!
