No New Coal Rally
Thursday, June 28, 2012 at 12.30pm
Parliament House, Melbourne.
Rally to show opposition to new coal projects, including a brown coal export industry, which would triple Victoria's contribution to greenhouse gas pollution.
Prime farmland, like Bacchus Marsh on the outskirts of Melbourne, is under threat from this reckless plan, using experimental technology to dry and export brown coal.
At the same time, the Federal and State governments are still offering the coal company HRL $150 million of taxpayers money to build a new coal fired power station in Victoria.
