Do you want to head to the frontline and get hands on with stopping the Adani coal mine?

A call to join the action is being sent out and locals are being reminded that the fight to stop the Adani coal mine in the Great Artesian Basin is still on.

A journey to the front line is being arranged by the Northern Rivers Stop Adani Group leaving on January 13 and returnign on January 21 and you can find out more at a social night on January 9 at Mullumbimby Commons, 91 Main Arm Road from 6 to 9pm.

The night will help inform the community about what is taking place as well as provide information on the upcoming journey and encourage people to get involved.

‘We have also organised to project uncut and rare footage and share stories from the blockade camp at Bowen,’ said one of the organisers Leon Hoffmann.

‘Protecting the Great Artesian Basin is the major environmental issue of our time.

‘It is estimated that hundreds of thousands of Australians are aware and mobilising on multiple levels.’

Living costs for the week on the front line are $250 and include everything.

If you would like more information look up the Stop Adani Byron Shire Facebook page. You can also post questions and ask someone to contact you on the Facebook page.

Alternatively every Monday at 6.30pm a strategy meeting is held upstairs at the Middle Pub in Mullumbimby to discuss how to effectively move the campaign forward.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
