Hands off our Coast
Sunday, 10 October, 2010 - 12:00 - 14:30
Come to the 350.org rally in Newcastle.
Meet at 12 pm on the 10th of October at the pavilion at Nobby's for speakers an on Climate Change, Gas Drillling and the Environment.
Bring a bucket and spade and join in with the creation of "350.org" in the sand
We need to stop the potentially very damaging gas drilling before it is too late. The government is keeping the public in the dark about the full impact of gas mining offshore and is putting corporate mining profits ahead of the marine ecology and renewable energy.
The governments know the potential environmental impacts of this offshore mining project are enormous. They know that seismic testing can disrupt whale migration, having an immediate impact on tourism. It creates a ‘fish desert’ in the area of testing, leaving commercial fishing operations without a catch for months.
