Tell the NSW Govt to Cancel Dart Energy's Licence.

Monday, September 01, 2014 at 09:00 AM

Either at the corner of Campbell and Euston Roads, St Peters.. or at the end of Kingsway in Cronulla. 

Dart Energy, which owns PEL 463, has been bankrupted by its inability to drill for CSG in metropolitan Sydney. It is being bought by UK gas giant IGas.


But IGas intends to divest itself of PEL 463. This means that the licence, which covers 2,400 square kilometres (from Gosford, to Blacktown to Sutherland), is likely to be sold on to another gas company when the time is right. 

Dart is holding its AGM on September 1 in Brisbane and will urge shareholders to approve the sale. 

We are protesting close to the proposed test drill site in St Peters which was stopped by the community *as well as* at the end of Kingsway in Cronulla. The reason for the two sites is to show the extend of this vast PEL.

Join Stop CSG Sydney, CSG Free Western Sydney and other anti-CSG activists bordering this expansive gas licence to demand PEL 463 is not sold on but extinguished now. 

Not here, not anywhere!
Organised by Stop CSG Sydney

Fractured Country at Parliament House Sydney

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 at 12:30 PM · 1 rsvp
Parliament House, NSW , 6 Macquarie Street, Sydney

Join us at Parliament House for a screening of Lock The Gate's powerful documentary 'Fractured Country - an Unconventional Invasion' narrated by Jack Thompson.

Alex Greenwich, MP for Sydney and Julie Lyford, former Mayor of Gloucester will introduce the film, which exposes the vast scale of the threat to our country from unconventional gas mining. More than half of Australia and 80% of NSW is covered in gas exploration licences and applications. Even Sydney’s drinking water catchment is under threat.

But despite this devastating reality, Australians are rising up to protect the country they love, and communities are taking on the mining giants and winning. This is a time when ordinary people become heroes.

RSVP essential.

All NSW MPs will be invited to join a post-screening panel discussion and their attendance or otherwise will be communicated to our supporters in their constituents.

But in the face of this, we are witnessing one of the biggest social movements in our country’s history – a time when ordinary people become heroes.

RSVPs essential

Wendy Bowman received an Order of Australia Medal for her service to the community of the Upper Hunter, specifically in her 18 year crusade to protect farming land from mining. Wendy has witnessed first hand the damage done to water resources by open cut coal mining.
