Two fossil fuel free events in May

Friends of the Earth Adelaide are happy to support the Wilderness Society in their campaign to protect wilderness and farmland from gas fracking, and to stop oil drilling from happening in the Great Australian Bight.

1. Stand up at Santos AGM

Join us from 8:30-10:30am outside the Santos AGM at the western end of the Convention Centre on North Terrace to highlight to shareholders the dangers of gas fracking.

Facebook event here

It’s time for South Australians to support our NSW cousins. Our common asset – Australia’s largest underground water resource, the Great Artesian Basin – is under serious threat from Santos’ plans for an 850 well coal seam gasfield in the Pilliga forest.

Farmers and traditional owners of the Pilliga area in North West NSW will travel over 1,400km to have their voices heard by the Santos board and shareholders.

We need South Australians to turn up in support and show Santos some home-grown opposition to its risky plans.

Recently NSW has seen many people-powered victories against CSG. Now, Santos’ Narrabri Gas Project in the Pilliga is the last CSG proposal in the state and the NSW Gasfield Free movement is focused on this final front.

The Pilliga forest is the largest woodland left in Eastern Australia and a critical recharge zone for the Great Artesian Basin.

We must make sure that Santos’ new CEO, its board and shareholders know without a doubt that it’s not just NSW people determined to stop CSG in the Pilliga but that South Australians are also aware and opposed to these risky plans.

2. Hands Across the Sand ADELAIDE EVENT – Facebook information here
Saturday 21st May 2016, 11:00am at Glenelg Beach Foreshore, near the jetty.

It is time again to join hands at Glenelg Beach and say NO to risky deepsea drilling in our Great Australian Bight and YES to clean energy and a low carbon economy.… Read more >>

Screen Shot 2015-11-25 at 1.39.38 PMOn November 29th, will you help create the biggest climate march the world has ever seen?

As world leaders gather in Paris to discuss a global agreement on climate change, we will be part of an international movement- on Sunday November 29th.

Starting from the Torrens Parade Ground, we will march for a transition to renewable energy, secure job creation, and a fairer, more resilient economy, for clean air, a healthy environment, and for a safe climate in the People’s Jobs Justice Climate March.

In a vibrant, musical, and visually creative show of people power and the diversity of our movement, the march will take us down King William Street through the centre of Adelaide.

We will march in sector blocks, each making up a part of the collective, while demonstrating its unique qualities through banners, placards, costumes etc.

At Victoria Square/Tarndanyangga the march will blend into a festival, where there will be music, food, speeches, and stalls.

Join the anti-nuclear “Don’t Nuke the Climate” block and march behind our SA: RENEWABLE NOT RADIOACTIVE banner. Meet 10:30am Torrens Parade Ground on the day.
