On 15th March, people from across the north-west of NSW will stand together as one to celebrate the results of our Gasfield Free Surveys and create a big human sign. It's time to protect our foodbowl!
Wonderful musicians, including 2015 triple Golden Guitar winner Luke O’Shea, are coming along to entertain us.
With the NSW State Election looming, this is an incredibly important moment to have our voices heard. Never has it been so important to stand up for our land and water.
We also will be inviting all the election candidates from our region to attend. They will be presented with Gasfield Free declaration certificates, and their responses to our candidates survey on coal and gas mining issues will be shared with everyone.
There'll be a free BBQ and a jumping castle for the kids. Please BYO chair, rug and drinks.
