Interview with James McMillan, founder of the Byron Surf Festival

With the Byron Bay Surf Festival just days away, founder James McMillan took a few minutes to talk to Seven about the awesome things planned for the coming weekend.

The NSW government is consulting with local communities to develop regional action plans that will include a Sustainable Regional Energy Infrastructure Plan. Note: nowhere have they mentioned the adverse impacts of CSG mining to the community.

This Tuesday 20 March, come and have your say at the community consultation forum held at Ballina RSL from 6:30pm to 8pm. (You may just spot a group of ‘super women’ with questions aimed and ready. )

Is it a coincidence they are not holding this forum in Lismore? Because of course CSG mining won’t effect people on the coast will it?
