It’s been an absolutely huge week in the campaign to stop Narrabri CSG. Hundreds of people are presenting at the IPC hearing and the vast majority are objecting to the project!
We’ve watched knitting nannas, local shire councillors, state MPs, CWA members, wildlife lovers, doctors, local landholders, townspeople from across the north west and many, many more, speaking passionately and knowledgeably against this destructive project.
We’ve made a huge impression this week. But it’s vital that we back this up with thousands of written submissions. Can you make a quick submission right now? https://www.csgfreenorthwest.org.au/narrabri_decision
We’ve heard from farmers worried about what CSG production will do to the groundwater they rely on for all their food production.
Gomeroi Traditional Custodians told the Commission that preservation of the Pilliga Forest is essential to maintaining their cultural wellbeing.
Yesterday, my friend Dave Watt, a rural fire service volunteer who farms adjacent to the proposed gasfield, warned the Commission of the increased risk of bushfire Santos will bring to the “tinderbox” Pilliga Forest.
If you’ve been moved or outraged by the evidence you’ve heard this week, I urge you to take a few minutes to submit an objection to the project.
Today the IPC has heard five hours of riveting expert testimony about groundwater, salt waste, biodiversity, social impacts, economics and more.
We have strong arguments on our side, what we need now is a wave of thousands of submissions opposing the gasfield.
The deadline has now been extended until the 10th August. Use our handy guide to help you make a unique submission objecting to the Narrabri CSG Project.
Tom, we need your help at this crucial moment.
Please help us keep north west NSW gasfield free by lodging a submission and encouraging your friends to do the same. https://www.csgfreenorthwest.org.au/narrabri_decision
