The recent victory in temporarily suspending Metgasco’s licence to explore for gas in Bentley has inspired further support for the ultimate goal of creating a gasfield-free zone forever.
Some of the region’s top musicians are donating their time and talents for this mega-benefit, with all funds raised going to the Environmental Defender’s Office (EDO).
The EDO consists of eight independently managed community environmental legal centres around Australia and has played a key although largely behind-the-scenes role in the gasfield-free Bentley community action, working with Lock The Gate on critical legal aspects of the campaign.
The federal government announced it would no longer fund EDOs the week before Christmas, two months after the NSW Minerals Council made public statements calling for an end to funding of EDOs.
Legendary singer/songwriter Toni Childs, a lifelong clean-Earth advocate, will premiere her newest work, due out in September, titled It’s All A Beautiful Noise, with her full band.
Toni Childs will be supported by singer/songwriter/storyteller Kerrianne Cox, and musician Laura Targett and her band. Thursday at the Star Court Theatre at 7pm. Tickets: $40/$30 con, from www.starcourttheatre.com.au or box office during business hours.
