NO DRILL RIGS IN BYRON SHIRE!!!
If you"re going to the parade at Mullum Music Festival, please take a banner
or drop it off at the gasfieldsfree stall outside the post office from 1.30 this arvo
or bring it to the meeting on Wednesday
or put it up in your garden, on a power pole, in a shop window ANYWHERE!
Let"s get the Shire covered in signs so the Aboriginal Land Council will quit their "prospecting"
(on behalf of someone no doubt).

NO DRILL RIGS IN BYRON SHIRE!!
"Rise up, Mullum our time has come to speak out" says Deborah Lilly of Mullumbimby Community Action Network. "No drill rigs in Byron Shire!"
Gas miners are poised to invade under the auspices of The Aboriginal Land Council. Prospecting Application PSPAA no 55 covers much of Byron and Tweed shires and seeks a licence to explore; submissions close on 5 December. A public information meeting and film on Wed 28 November, 6pm, in Byron Shire Council Chambers, Mullumbimby, will take a vote on whether we want CSG & other gas mining in Mullumbimby. This process is for Mullum residents and will be repeated in other areas in the shire.

"Do we want to become a pin cushion of drill rigs with interconnecting roads and pipes, noise of compressors 24/7, air pollution, destruction of groundwater, soils contaminated by salt hills and fracking chemicals and have our prime agricultural land ruined forever?" demands Ms Lilly. "Do you want to see the sun rise, or have the sky lit up night and day with gas flares? Is this the future we want for Byron Shire? Get involved, come on board and engage with community" she said.
