“Media Release dated Monday 5 September 2016 – “Seeking Community Members for Demand Management Community Reference Group”
ABC’s 7.30 program aired a story about the federal Government and Minerals Council’s attacks on groups like Lock the Gate.
The program highlighted the latest offensive in the ongoing campaign by government and industry to shut down the voices of communities defending land and water from destructive mining.
But we won’t let them! These attacks just make us even more determined to carry on. Lets stand up to the bullies and continue our vital worktogether!
Together we are infuriating these guys! They hate that we’re standing up to their bullying and exposing the damage mining does to land and water.
That’s why they’re trying to strip our tax deductible status, silence our voices during elections and increase our red-tape.
We still have so much work to do with communities who are facing the devastating impacts of mining. Will you support us in the face of this direct attack?
Lock the Gate is grateful for ongoing support from thousands of Australians like you.
We are proud to be working with farmers, community members and Traditional Owners who are on the front line of damaging coal and gas projects across the country.
Please help us keep up the pressure in the face of these attacks. We can’t do it without you!
Thought you might be interested to know that last night Council voted 5 to 2 to refused the two Development Applications lodged by Larry Karlos for his Dungay water extraction operation.
In the interest of fast dissemination, I have attached a copy of the Council Minutes in pdf form.
Thank you all again for your continued interest,
Thanks for your info , friends. As it turned out I was given little time, as 7:30 Report wanted to talk mostly politics: what is likely for the Fed election, so I steered them towards Michael MacNamara (who did well) If they use me at all i t will be for theT shirt I wore which said “Don’t Frack the Tweed” Said it could go to air on Wedn, but others have a say in that.
For a frack-free future !
