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.WHENFebruary 03, 2019 at 2pmWHEREBronte Bowling Club

Hunter Valley farmer Wendy Bowman has been awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize for her extraordinary success in protecting her farm from being open cut for coal mining.
Will you help us amplify Wendy's win and shine a spotlight on the damage coal mining is doing to the Hunter Valley?
Wendy was forced to leave her land once due to a coal mine, but when they tried a second time on her next farm she stood her ground.
She has beaten a coal mining company in court, and now we need to change the law so no more Australian farmers are forced to move for coal mining.
Write a message to Australian politicians telling them to stop letting coal companies buy-up huge areas of farmland. In the Singleton Shire where Wendy farms, coal companies own 15% of all freehold land and 27% of all mapped strategic agricultural land.
When the government grants approval for a mine, they let them pollute the landscape with noise and air far beyond their own boundaries, forcing local people to sell up and leave. Wendy Bowman has stood her ground - support her courage today and help other Hunter farmers under threat.206 signatures

We the undersigned demand the Premier of NSW Mike Baird and his Roads Minister Duncan Gay refuse to close Bulga's Wallaby Scrub Road to allow Warkworth Mining Limited (Rio Tinto) to destroy our convict built heritage road for open cut coal mining.
The owner of the road, Singleton Council, has reaffirmed its objection to the closure of Wallaby Scrub Road by voting against the closure at their recent meeting. Council is supporting the Bulga community, and we call on the Baird Government to do the same.
Baird's State Government has ignored the Land and Environment Court and the Supreme Court and abandoned the people of Bulga and Milbrodale in the Hunter Valley. The Commonwealth Government has worked hand in glove with the NSW Government to allow the destruction of world unique woodlands and aboriginal culture and history.
Wallaby Scrub Road is a heritage road built by the convicts and must be preserved as part of our European heritage. We must not allow a profit driven international mining company to destroy our heritage against wishes of the community and to mine a product which is destroying our planet.

Bishops, wine-makers, livestock producers and conservationists have penned a joint letter to NSW Premier Mike Baird calling on him to protect our common home from a coal mining industry that is out of control. You can read the full text of the joint letter here
Our common home, our farmland, rivers, villages and bushland are being torn up or ruined for coal mining. How long are coal affected communities expected to wait for the Government to do something to fix up coal mining?
We've put an ad in Mike Baird's local paper, the Manly Daily, and want all of you to give him a call and add your voice to the push to reform coal mining and save our communities, landscapes and rural industries. Can you call him?
