ALAN JONES ON THE PLANNING REFORMS:
Jones, with passion and flair tells us how it is . . . and what could happen . . .
YOUR RIGHTS BULLDOZED!
Minister Brad Hazzard will be introducing draft legislation into parliament in the next few weeks every voice counts now, but if they get their way, it"ll be like having our vocal chords cut as far as community input to planning decisions is concerned. Please write to Don Page, Brad Hazzard and Barry O"Farrell.

FRACKING NEWS: (from GAG Kyogle)
14. People actually facing our worst nightmare ask you to please consider signing this petition:
"Since August 2nd, 2013, residents living across the road from Origin Energy's "Ironbark" Project near Kogan, Western Downs, QLD, have been continually showered by an unknown toxic black substance emanating from Origin's project site. The mystery substance, which has so far rained down over thousands of acres, contaminating bushland, farms and domestic water supplies, is accompanied by feelings of nausea, skin and eye irritations, and what residents describe as a chronic lack of physical energy. Despite repeated complaints to Origin and several departments of the Queensland State Government, so far the only people to have approached the residents regarding this problem are the local police, who wanted to know if the residents intended to stage a protest. This disgraceful, negligent and dangerous situation cannot continue. Origin Energy must either cease operations at "Ironbark" until the toxic black rain can be eliminated, or move local residents out of the hazard zone at company expense immediately".
Watch the vid on this link and imagine living with that noise (compressor?) as well as the gunk falling from the sky, brown water, etc. Oh dear.
