The NSW Government has said they intend to push for a final decision on the dangerous Narrabri CSG project in north-west NSW early next year.
If approved, it could open the floodgates and unleash gasfields across southern Australia, undoing all the success of our amazing movement over the last 10 years.
Can you help us stop this project, get the expert advice that is needed and push to get permanent protection for this recharge zone of the Great Artesian Basin?

Renewable energy is cheaper and cleaner. Coal and gas are not financially viable without government subsidy and licence to pollute without punishment. We get harmed, and then punished for protest. Dirty, fossil fuel corrupted politicians who support coal and gas over people have to be thrown out of office.

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?
Michael Rynn posted about The Bulga Declaration on Facebook 2015-12-16 09:45:33 +1100The Bulga Declaration: stand with Wonnarua people and the village of Bulga against Rio Tinto.3,071 signatures
We, the undersigned, make this promise: we will not allow the Warkworth mine to destroy Saddle Ridge and the Warkworth Sands, nor the village of Bulga.
Saddle Ridge and the Warkworth Sands harbour woodlands and wildlife that are vanishing from the Hunter Valley due to open cut coal mining. The area is an ancient pathway and place of harmony, protection, and direction for Wonnarua people. It shields the village of Bulga from noise and dust rising from the super pits of Rio Tinto's Mount Thorley-Warkworth mine. For the Wonnarua, the people of Bulga, and the wildlife, Saddle Ridge and the Warkworth Sands are home; protecting and guiding them. Such things cannot be compensated for. They cannot be sold, or replaced.
The NSW government may have signed the death warrant for Warkworth Sands and the village of Bulga, but the people have not. The government and Rio Tinto are colluding against us, but we are united and we will not be subdued.
The highest courts in New South Wales have rejected the Warkworth mine expansion for the same reasons we reject it. By siding with Rio Tinto to subvert the people’s victory in court, the government has crossed a line. Now we are the ones that will uphold fairness, protect the ridge and restore faith in organised community.
We stand with the village of Bulga and Wonnarua traditional owners. We pledge to them that we will use all peaceful means to help them protect community and culture from the Warkworth coal mine.
The Declaration is endorsed by:
- Bulga Milbrodale Progress Association
- Kevin Taggart, Wonnarua traditional owner.
