Greens MP heads to Bega to talk TAFE and Adani

NSW Greens MP, Dawn Walker is heading to Bega to talk TAFE and stopping the Adani coal mine at a series of events on the 26 and 27 March. Dawn Walker will be hosting a Stop Adani forum in Bega at 6PM on Monday 26th March where she will be showing a short film about her recent visit to the Adani mine site where she was arrested along with other climate activists protesting the mine’s construction. “I know that people across the South Coast care about stopping the destructive Adani mega mine and want to protect our climate and the Great Barrier Reef. “By every measure, Adani's controversial mine does not stack up and I want to share that with the South Coast community” said Dawn Walker MP. The Stop Adani forum will be followed by an action outside Bega TAFE on Tuesday 27th March to oppose the potential loss of up to 20 head teacher positions across South Coast TAFE campuses. “TAFE is the lifeblood of regional communities and the loss of up to 20 head teacher positions across South Coast TAFE campuses, including two head teacher roles from the business and community service courses at Bega TAFE is appalling. “The NSW Liberal-Nationals are destroying our public TAFE system through budget cuts and a ruthless privatisation agenda. “The Greens will be doing everything we can to ensure that the vital head teaching roles will be retained at South Coast TAFE campuses so that young people and job seekers can continue to access a quality vocational education through TAFE. “I’m also very aware of the devastating bushfires that have hit South Coast communities so am keen to talk with locals and offer my support as a State Parliamentarian” said Dawn Walker MP. Event Details: STOP ADANI FORUM: 6PM, Monday 26th March at Cafe Evolve, 210 Carp St, Bega.· BEGA TAFE ACTION: 9AM, Tuesday 27th March outside Bega TAFE campus, Barrack Street, Bega.
