Interview with Nick Sergi, producer of the Byron Music Festival

Nick Sergi, producer of the Byron Music Festival talks to The Echo.

Last week, major mining firm AJ Lucas moved to buy coal seam gas licences in the northern rivers and other parts of NSW for $2.5 million.

This gas licence covers Lismore, Clunes, Bexhill, Nimbin and the drinking water catchment for Byron and Ballina Shires.

It’s an ominous sign for our community. This company is making an investment decision to buy gas licences because they know that after the state election, the Liberals and Nationals intend to roll out coal seam gas.

We are facing a crossroads on March 28. Vote Green if you want a statewide ban on CSG mining to protect our land and water.

Tamara Smith, Greens candidate for Ballina
