WHY IS THIS EVENT HAPPENING?
The Bylong Valley and it’s richly productive farmland is at risk from a brand new coal mine proposed by KEPCO. But there’s still hope that the NSW Independent Planning Commission will recognise the unique values of this place. The coal project would have unacceptable impacts on local agriculture, water and on rich natural and cultural heritage. It is the wrong mine, in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Join us in the Bylong Valley to see for yourself what’s at stake.
