Deborah Lilly, Mullumbimby
Mullumbimby’s Declaration Day to be Gasfield Free will be celebrated on Friday June 14, 9am at Mullumbimby Farmers Market. Please come and show your support. Frock up, dress to impress and carry a placard to send a strong message to the politicians that Mullum’s land and water is protected by community. The Gate is Locked.
A prize will go to the most impressive banner or placard brought to the event. This consensus decision marks a turning point in the future of Mullumbimby, and determines what kind of survival legacy we’ll leave for our kids.
Children are also invited to be involved by expressing their views on CSG through artworks, pictures and/or slogans to show how they feel about invasive gas and coal mining. These artworks: A4 size, may be left at Santos and will be displayed in Mullum shop windows for a week commencing Tuesday June 11. Winners will be announced at the Declaration Day celebration Friday June 14 at 9am at Mullum Farmers Market. Please see www.calltocountry.org.au for slogan ideas. Those who don’t have time for activism may participate by donating a prize for any of the categories: best overall design, most original idea and people’s choice. There will be prizes for under 10s, 10-15 and over 16 age groups. More details at www.mullumaction.org or call 66843723.
This occasion puts Mullumbimby on the CSG-free map and numbers count – all welcome!
