Rally to Protect our Land and Water
Date: Tuesday 1 May, 12noon
Location: Martin Place, marching to NSW Parliament
Your support is needed next Tuesday to protect our land and water
Next Tuesday on 1 May there will be an historic political rally at the NSW Parliament.
Farmers, Environmentalists, and community groups will speak with one voice to tell the Government that it has had enough of the mining at all costs approach in NSW.
The Government's Strategic Landuse Plans that were supposed to protect the environment and agricultural land from coal and gas mining have been labelled a failure by all stakeholders.
In fact the Coalition Government has introduced its own Part 3A style clause into the new rules allowing cabinet over-ride to declare the project of exceptional value.
At risk is our agricultural land, our drinking warer catchments, and the state's biodiversity.
We need your support to make this rally a success. We need 10,000 people to descend on Martin Place next Tuesday at 12noon to march to Parliament and make our voices heard on this important issue.
