On Wednesday May 4, at the 2016 Santos AGM, Traditional Owners, farmers, environmentalists and even a finance analyst will be travelling to Adelaide to raise concerns inside the meeting. The new CEO of gas giant Santos is fronting his first AGM and we need to be ready to make sure the message is clear – communities across NSW are opposed to coal seam gas drilling near our farmlands.
To coincide there will be colourful protest vigils at the Sydney and Brisbane offices, as well as out in the bush, near where Santos are proposing their invasive gasfield.
Please Join us in Sydney on Wednesday 4 May at Santos’ head office to show that communities in NSW will continue to oppose any company involved in endangering our farmland or precious water resources.
We will hear from key community members leading the fight against CSG in NSW, including the founder of the Knitting Nannas Against Gas Clare Twomey, Gomeroi activist Vanessa Hickey and 94-year-old environmentalist Bill Ryan among others at 10:00 am on Wednesday May 4th at Santos' Sydney offices on the corner of Reiby Place and Loftus Street at Circular Quay in Sydney's CBD.
Ahead of the upcoming AGM we've also asked people to email the Santos CEO a personal message here and to sign a petition here, but nothing is more powerful than turning up!
