Coalmines damage rivers and land
It’s taken the government two years and a lot of tax-payers money to find out in its long-awaited, southern coalfields inquiry what RiversSOS and other community groups have know for over 10 years: that coal mines damage rivers and aquifers, destroy bush, cause unfixable subsidence to homes, water courses and land.
This Wednesday, 16th July, SOS Liverpool Plains & CCAG will hold a public meeting at the Quirindi RSL from 7.00pm to discuss some of these urgent problems and the costs we, the community, will be expected to bear if mining goes ahead on the world-class Liverpool Plains.
Come and see the latest evidence of mine damage, listen to mine-affected community members talking about the untold negative health and socio-economic effects, understand the draconian planning laws and failure of democracy that is happening in NSW and what we, the community, can and are doing about it. Come and ask your questions of our panel. Be interested and informed about your future!
