Love to have lunch with Tom…

Community members who hold grave concerns about the safety of our future will gather tomorrow in Lismore to eat lunch with their local MP.

A pop-up picnic demanding sanity on coal and gas will be held outside Lismore MP Thomas George’s Office as part of an state-wide anti-mining action.

The picnic is one of 10 being held across New South Wales this week, inviting state MPs to cast their vote in the People’s Referendum on Coal and Gas.

The event is part of a series of actions in the #Time2Choose campaign to restore balance and protect New South Wales people, landscapes and water resources from harmful impacts of coal and gas.

Lunch starts at Thomas George’s office, 55 Carrington Street, Lismore at 12 noon.
