CSG Free NQ Inc.

It’s time to write to our local council to let them know of our concerns around CSG and unconventional gas. Local body Councils are almost alone in having retained the right to object to proposed CSG mining activities. Until the Palauszczuk government succeeds in rescinding recent law changes restricting the right for most third parties to object, we must persuade local Councils to act on behalf of those individuals and organisations whose right has been removed. In our Region the Douglas Shire Council and the Cook Shire Council have publicly declared their opposition to coal seam gas activities within their areas and are to be congratulated for their forthrightness. CSG Free NQ believes in the power of letters written to Council as a way of getting a subject noticed and acted upon so, in the spirit of non-violent direct action we are proposing a letter writing campaign aimed at bringing…

Write to Your Local Council

It’s time to write to our local council to let them know of our concerns around CSG and unconventional gas. Local body Councils are almost alone in having retained the right to object to proposed CSG mining activities. Until the Palauszczuk government succeeds in rescinding recent law changes restricting the right for most third parties to object, we must persuade local Councils to act on behalf of those individuals and organisations whose right has been removed. In our Region the Douglas Shire Council and the Cook Shire Council have publicly declared their opposition to coal seam gas activities within their areas and are to be congratulated for their forthrightness. CSG Free NQ believes in the power of letters written to Council as a way of getting a subject noticed and acted upon so, in the spirit of non-violent direct action we are proposing a letter writing campaign aimed at bringing the risks and dangers of CSG mining enterprises to the attention of the Cairns Regional Council and requesting councillors to inform themselves of the risks and dangers of industrialising the landscape in this way and to establish a formal position on CSG enterprises within it’s area. Obviously, the more letters the better the result. We’ve prepared a Letter to The Mayor Cr Manning and Councillors you can print and sign here, add your own comments, or even better write one in your own words, borrowing the information you need. As an example of the kinds of things a CSG Free council might do, here is Lismore City Council’s Web Page on the subject : https://docs.google.com/document/d/1U_JkSgFU8CCNbSEL7Ra0MCsMIemRe_uZ9EqIWZQhQiI/edit If we are to make a difference to this single bottom line attitude towards a very dangerous business, we each must take that one step.
