Eurobodalla Residents Plan Protest Against Morrison’s 'Gas Cash Grab' Sept 25th

ON FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 25TH, workers, school students and concerned locals in the Eurobodalla will rally as part of a day of action demanding PM Morrison rule out giving billions of Covid-19 recovery funds to gas.

Organisers of the rally have told The Beagle "The September 25th: #FundOurFutureNotGas day of action is quickly becoming the most widespread day of action against gas in Australia’s history, with hundreds of actions. The day is being organised by the School Strike 4 Climate network, as well as First Nations communities, unions, and everyday Australians in response to leaked plans revealing that PM Morrison is considering giving billions of Covid-19 recovery funds to gas."

Geoff Berry, who is helping to organise the event, said: “Concerned citizens here in the Eurobodalla want Scott Morrison to invest Covid-19 recovery funds into renewable energy, creating thousands of jobs that would also help tackle climate change. Giving billions of taxpayer dollars to the polluting gas industry is clearly an irresponsible use of public funds.

"The leaked gas plans come from the National Covid-19 Coordination Commission, a commission that is stacked with gas executives. Of course they’re trying to convince Scott Morrison to give billions of taxpayer dollars to their own industry. It’s appalling; especially as we on the south coast continue to try and deal with the devastating blow delivered to our forests last summer.

"The key issue causing all this concern is, of course, anthropogenic climate change and the clear and present danger it presents for locals, people all over the world, and for our precious natural environment.”

DATE/TIME: Friday 25th of September, from 12 noon

LOCATION: Out the front of Council Chambers, Moruya

DETAILS: Concerned locals encouraged to protest in silence, in visually impressive costumes.
