Have you seen what a gasfield looks like, from the air?
Don’t believe the hype! The vast majority of top-level politicians and mainstream media are bought and paid for by the oil and gas industries. Do your own research.
There is no way that fracking can be guaranteed safe. Internet and alternative media have endless reports of air, water, and land contamination, plus sickness and dislocation in communities.
The employment argument is totally self-serving – if the subsidies were taken from fossil-fuels and re-directed to renewable energy and retro-fitting housing for energy-efficiency, far more jobs would be created, and they wouldn’t be fly-in fly-out either.
I invite local community media and educational institutions to proactively campaign for electoral registration. There are thousands of unregistered or inaccurately-registered voters out there, especially new young (age 18+) entrants. The closing date for registration is March 9.
Registering and voting is a lot less hassle than last-ditch battles to stop industrial invasion on the ground.
Do you, the 98.6 per cent, really mean it? Grab your chance to vote – and don’t vote for promises of safety, vote to keep Northern Rivers fully gasfield-free.
