Deborah Lilly, Mullumbimby Gasfield-Free Community co-ordinator
CSG: the greatest threat to our water/earth/air that we’ve ever known and Mullumbimby responds with so much love. The sense of community was so thick in the air of the council chambers at the recent public meeting that even the air-conditioning was struggling.
The chambers weren’t big enough for all who attended; the playpen in the middle was packed with folks on the floor and more squashed in around the edges. Apologies to those who couldn’t squeeze in or had to stand; our tight timeframe (submissions due December 5) and zero budget limited our resources.
Much gratitude to the open-hearted generosity of Mullum people, who gave $1,886 in donations and sales; even after expenses we’re well set to get educational materials and LTG signs for the survey process, which begins soon!
Next meeting for area coordinators is on Thursday December 8 at 6pm. Call 6684 3723.
Mullum has palpably embraced this exciting and growing social movement to stand together for our rights to clean water, air and earth. Blessed be, Mullumbimby!
