Rally at Hyde Park North Fountain for a short march to State Parliament, Macquarie St, for handover of petitions to the Premier. Coal seam gas (CSG) licences and wells have been approved in our drinking water catchments, and the current legislation does not stop CSG mining there. NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell made a clear promise to protect our water catchments from the risks of CSG mining, a promise he has broken. Over 10,000 residents of NSW have signed a petition for a ban on CSG prospecting and mining in NSW drinking water catchments. Be there when it is delivered to the Premier, help ensure the spotlight is on this debate, and remind the Government who they work for.
Deliver a Message to the Premier: Stop CSG in Water Catchments
