North West NSW farmers are coming to Sydney and they need your support!
Farmers have launched a legal appeal in the Land and Environment Court against the Independent Planning Commission’s approval of the destructive Santos Narrabri gasfield.
The case starts in Court on Monday 30 August.
Can you be there for this rally and ask all of your friends to join you?
The farmers, from local group the Mullaley Gas and Pipeline Accord (MGPA) and represented by the Environmental Defenders Office, argue the IPC did not assess the project’s climate impacts in a way that was consistent with the law and failed to assess the impacts of an external pipeline which would be needed to transport the gas.
If the 850-well gasfield goes ahead, it will be responsible for a total of nearly 130MT of greenhouse gas emissions. If the judicial review is successful, the IPC will have to reconsider its approval of the gasfield.
