This is about Mining on the Mid-North Coast, current threats, past evidence and action being taken that you can involve yourself in! Current threats to this area include toxic mines for Gold (Cyanide processing) & Antimony Mining and they are dangerous because of the extremely high rainfall in this area. Antimony mining in its headwaters has destroyed the Macleay River that flows through Kempsey.
We want people to know about what is going in their backyard!
This is also part of the National Week of Action against Coal Seam Gas. We stand with our brothers and sisters all across Australia to oppose this new energy obsession and enemy of Australia's Natural Heritage. PROTECT OUR WATER! PROTECT OUR LAND! PROTECT OUR KIDS!
Come and demonstrate where the Mid-North Coast stands on this issue!
