Throughout 2012, FoE has won some of the only victories so far under the Baillieu government:

  • New wind farm approved: We flooded the planning ministers office with messages of support when the Chepstowe wind farm proposal was called in for review. The plan was approved.
  • Put CSG on the map: We put the issue of CSG ‘on the map’ here in Victoria through our CSG roadshow,
  • No more Coal Seam Gas: Working with regional communities, we helped beat 6 applications to look for coal and coal seam gas (CSG) in western Victoria.We helped get a moratorium on the process of fracking to extract gas and the use of dangerous BTEX chemicals.

FoE campaigns are active on more local issues than ever but we are stretched well beyond our capacity and Friends, we need your support to sustain our existing campaigns and further expand our work.

Strength lies within communities, and there is great strength in the FoE community!

Please donate today to make your contribution towards very real, appreciable outcomes for the benefit of people and planet in 2013.

If you have already made a donation, we thank you for your support and wish you and your family a safe and happy New Year.

PS. Just $50 goes a long way toward helping campaigners & activists to print publications, run community stalls, travel to communicate with rural communities etc.
