Hundreds of committed citizens of Keerrong and The Channon form a human map of our roads and creeks. The legal system and governments have failed us. Now we're taking a stand. We won't let gas miners contaminate our water, air and land with toxic chemicals. Through grassroots public meetings and surveys, we reached a 99% majority decision to close our roads and valleys to coal seam gas mining.
We're saying to the miners: "You're not coming here". As we present the CSG-free road declarations to our mayor, we celebrate the strength of community.
This video launches the CSG-free Community Strategy in the Northern Rivers, NSW Australia. We're taking back our communities from the gas miners.
