PLANNING REFORM PETITION; LIVING EARTH FEST; FRACKED TEXAS WATER; SENATE CLIP

Greetings, amigos

PROPOSED NSW PLANNING LAWS WORSE THAN THE SCRAPPED PART 3A LEGISLATION
Please sign and forward this petition asking O"Farrell to withdraw the Planning Bill which are the developers wet dream (to borrow an expression once used by Sartor about Part 3A – and this is far far worse than Part 3A).

LIVING EARTH FESTIVAL

MULLUMBIMBY COMMUNITY GARDENS – SUNDAY 1st SEPT
Calling all supporters of Lock the Gate movement – please join us in the Living Earth procession on first day of spring meeting 9 am behind Council Chambers – come dressed with gasfield-free theme (a methane bubble perhaps?) or wear yellow & black; banners, placards most welcomed and you can bring them to the KIDZART tent at the Gardens, or create one there afterwards. Kidz of all ages – free up your creativity and have fun with your imagination and add to our collection of artworks which may become a book.


GASFIELD-FREE STREET SIGNS FOR MULLUM – funds needed!!
A beautiful sign with an outline of Mt Chincogan declaring Mullum 95% Gasfield Free, Protected by Community, has been designed and approved by council. We are just finalising the position for two of them. We need $800 to cover cost of 2 signs and erection by council. We decided this would be more attractive than yellow coreflute signs on every road in town – they get faded and bent. All donations gratefully received on http://www.mullumaction.org website or call me 66843723 if you have fundraising ideas.



TEXAS WATER FRACKED OUT OF EXISTENCE

WHAT DOES THE SENATE DO?
What happens if the prime minister gets to be in charge of the Senate? Check this amusing GetUp! clip for an explanation https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151516703756455&t=dXNlcmlkPTU1OTA1NyxlbWFpbGlkPTIzNzM=
