Act to protect NSW from coal seam gas mining

Rate this item
(0 votes)

Thursday 15 March will be an historic day in the NSW Parliament. It will be the first time that any Parliament in Australia has voted on a Coal Seam Gas Moratorium Bill.
 
The Bill is supported by the NSW Greens and the ALP. So it only needs 2 more members of the NSW Upper House to vote for the Bill and it will pass.

The legislation would still need to pass the Lower House to become law, but it would take our movement one huge step closer towards protecting our land and water from coal seam gas mining.

The remaining members of the Upper House need to hear from you urgently this week. Please get on the phone and ask the key players to vote for the CSG Moratorium Bill on Thursday.

While making a phone call is the most effective tactic, an email could also be useful.

A rally will be held outside NSW Parliament House, Macquarie Street, Sydney, 4pm, Thursday, 15 March.

Numbers to call:
Robert Brown, Shooters and Fishers Party:  (02) 9230 3059, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Robert Borsak, Shooters and Fishers Party:  (02) 9230 2850, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Fred Nile, Christian Democrats Party:   (02) 9230 3484, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Paul Green, Christian Democrats Party:  (02) 9230 2478, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The Shooters and Fishers need to hear that coal seam gas will undermine landholder rights, alienate public lands from recreation, and threaten our waterways and fisheries.

The Christian Democrats need to hear that coal seam gas will harm families, devalue land, and threaten the health and well-being of rural communities.

These four people hold the future of the coal seam gas moratorium in the palm of their hand. They can join with the other parties to get this Bill passed through the NSW Upper House. Please call them today.
