SOS Liverpool Plains
Our mission is to support CCAG by raising awareness of the real effects of coal mining: on the people; the workers; the communities; the rivers; the land and the air surrounding these developments. To raise the facts to the light and let people decide – to reinvigorate democracy and negate the morally-corrupt 3A Planning Law which seeks to destroy it.
Who we are:-
We represent country and city women from all walks of life – business women, wives, mothers, teachers,
medics, scientists, accountants, IT professionals and grandmothers – who support the Caroona Coal Action Group and the work of RiversSOS, real people who resolutely campaign against the destruction of this country’s most precious resource after its people – WATER.
We want to make people aware how little the NSW government does to enforce environmental remediation; how there are already over 5000 unremediated mines in NSW leaking acid mine drainage and other hazards into our environment. We want people to know how few skilled staff positions the government agencies tasked with monitoring actually have and that mines are not responsible for off-site impacts. We want to expose the raw link between the weakening of rights to freehold land and royalties paid to the government.
