    Bronte Bowling Club in Waverley, Australia

    Bronte doorknock

    Bronte, do you think the future of NSW rests with more coal and gas mining, or with renewable energy?

         (Last door knock team at Randwick) 

    We'd like to know what you think, which is why we're going to be knocking on your door on Sunday 3rd February 2019.

    Did you know eleven new and expanding coal mines in NSW will produce more coal, use more water and occupy more land than Adani’s mega-mine in Queensland?

    Did you know there’s a new 850 well coal seam gasfield proposed in the Pilliga forest and surrounding farmland near Narrabri?

    These mining projects are proposed in some of our state’s most precious places, in the drinking water catchments of Sydney and on the rich horse-breeding and wine-growing regions of the Hunter Valley, and in our foodbowl on the Liverpool Plains.

    It sounds grim, but the good news is, there’s something we can do about it.

    To build our movement and an unstoppable momentum for change, we are having powerful conversations with people from across the Eastern Suburbs about coal and gas mining, renewable energy and climate change.

    We want a future with clean energy, productive farms, clean water and thriving communities.

    So why not join our doorknock at 2pm, on Sunday 3rd February?

    We'll meet at Bronte Bowling Club at 2pm for training, followed by a 2 hr doorknock from 3 pm - 5 pm. Followed by light refreshments back at Bronte Bowlo.

    Narrabri Crossing Theatre

    Pilliga Rising Premiere

    Join us for this gorgeous new film about the Pilliga forest and the people that are fighting to protect it from CSG.

    Sunday 24th February, 4:30 - 6:30pm, Narrabri Crossing Theatre. World premiere!

    Don’t miss this moving tale of four characters, worlds-apart, united by their love of the Pilliga forest and determination to protect it from coal seam gas. A loving father, a young Indigenous multimedia artist, an experienced citizen scientist and a businesswoman-potter who has made the Pilliga her home rise up to protect water, people, country and community from a proposed coal seam gasfield in the Pilliga forest.

    An oil and gas corporation plans to drill 850 wells through the Great Artesian Basin – one of the largest underground freshwater reservoirs in the world – which recharges in the Pilliga. This is the story of the Pilliga told by the people rising to defend it.

    (for other North West NSW screenings, see here)
