|The coal seam gas debate: You can watch online from 10am.
Tomorrow morning in the NSW Parliament, members of the Upper House will have the chance to vote to protect our land and water from coal seam gas.
It’s an unprecedented opportunity.
Over the past week thousands of us have told our MPs it’s time to do the right thing — to stop coal seam gas threatening our farms, forests, water catchments, and communities, once and for all.
We’ve had some great wins in recent months, with many coal seam gas licences being cancelled. But the threat still exists for large areas of our state, including the Gloucester valley, Northern Rivers, the south west suburbs of Sydney, and the Pilliga Forest in north west NSW.
Tomorrow our Upper House MPs can act to protect these areas from being industrialised by sprawling gasfields.
If you’d like to watch the debate unfold, it’s due to kick off around 10am tomorrow.
You can watch it streaming online from the NSW Parliament website (look for the Legislative Council webcast). We’ll also post a link tomorrow morning on our Facebook page and on Twitter.
The public gallery will be open too, so if you’re in Sydney you can come along to the Legislative Council at Parliament House on Macquarie Street from 10am tomorrow. The nearest train stations are Martin Place and St James.
We’ll be sure to keep you posted on what happens,
Kate and the Land Water Future team
