Support our Farmers and Protect our Climate. This Wednesday Lunchtime

Our Water, Our Land, Our Future. Only 3 days to go!

Support our farmers and protect our climate at this parliamentary protest.
When: this Wednesday 4th of Aug, lunchtime 12-1pm.
Where: State Parliament House, George St, Brisbane

Fossil fuel extraction is exploding in Queensland to the detriment of our climate, our farmers, rural communities and groundwater. At lunchtime this Wednesday over 100 farmers will descend on Parliament House to call for protection of our cropping land from coal and coal seam gas extraction and they need your support.

A list of excellent speakers from across the Darling Downs and from conservation and climate groups will take the message to our politicians that real climate action begins in our own backyard.

Both the Liberal-National Party and the Greens have confirmed that they will respond to our demands on the day, with the Government as yet unconfirmed.

Come along and hear from:
Ruth Armstrong from Cecil Plains on behalf of Save our Darling Downs
Rob McCreath from Felton on behalf of Friends of Felton
Scott Collins from Tara on behalf of the Western Downs Alliance
Toby Hutcheon from Queensland Conservation
Drew Hutton and Hannah Elvery from Six Degrees, Friends of the Earth, Brisbane
Jo-Anne Bragg from the Environmental Defenders Office

Politicians speaking on the day include:
The Queensland LNP (speaker to be advised)
Larissa Waters - The Greens lead senate candidate

RSVP on facebook.
