Hands Off Our Coast - Rally for Renewables, stop the offshore oil and gas
Sunday, 10 October, 2010 - 12:00 - 14:00
This solar powered event is about taking action against offshore gas and oil drilling off the NSW coast. We need investment to build an industry in clean, renewable energy instead!
Come along and get active, meet the HOOC members and be a part of the plans for a renewable future for Newcastle!
How to Get Involved Planning the Event: There is so much you can do to help the newly formed Hands Off Our Coast Group. Write a letter to the editor, contact your local MP and come along to this day. For this event, help out with the solar set up for the day, food or other activities for the family to enjoy. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Event Host: Hands Off Our Coast is a coalition of concerned community members, environmental groups, politicians and industry groups who all care about our coast and the waters surrounding it. Why are our governments continuing to subsidise fossil fuel exploration and extraction when the technology is there for clean renewables? The barriers are not technological but political.
