    After a six year struggle to save their town from the Warkworth coal mine, Bulga residents are travelling to Sydney to set up New Bulga - a new village to replace the historic Hunter Valley community that Rio and the government have set out to extinguish. 

    After spending Sunday in the Domain, the New Bulga demonstration will set up at 52 Martin Place on [new date TBA]. This is right outside the office block that Premier Mike Baird and Planning Minister Rob Stokes work in. We need to remind them that real humans, real communities are paying the price for this government's addiction to coal.

    We'd love you to join us.

    Bulga residents have fought for over six years to save their town from the Warkworth coal mine expansion. They won two court cases against the project. But Rio Tinto and the NSW Government joined forces against them, and re-approved the mine.

    Now, Bulga residents have no legal avenues left to undo the approval. 

    But are they going down without a fight? No way. Not Bulga. 

    Join us in Sydney on [new date TBA], we're setting up New Bulga – a pop-up community that will symbolise, for a moment at least, everything we hold dear about our community. We'll set up our new village in the heart of Sydney – under the noses of the decision-makers that have conspired against us. And we want you to join us in support. 

    Come along for a fun family-friendly event in the heart of Sydney,
