Editorial: The beef about meat

Firstly, let me declare an interest: I have been a vegetarian for 49 years, so tasty cow parts are not high on my agenda.

The northern rivers community to date has demonstrated an overwhelming majority consensus to reject CSG mining in our area.

The CSG-free communities campaign, which launched in The Channon, has come to the Tweed Valley, starting from Tyalgum, next stop is the Mount Burrell area.

Northern Rivers Guardians are holding a Public Meeting at Sphinx Rock Café, 3pm Saturday, June 9, chaired by Dr Len Martin and addressed by Scott Sledge to engage our local community on the issues of CSG mining.

This is a non-political event. Everyone is welcome and afternoon tea is available.

The goal is to survey residents of the valley and secure a majority decision to declare Tweed Valley CSG-free in solidarity with many other local communities in our area.
