Kurri Kurri Gas Protests

On Friday members of Sydney Knitting Nannas, Northern Beaches Climate Action, Lock the Gate, Gas Free Hunter and Coal Fields for Climate Action protested outside Rob Stokes office against the ludicrous $600 million Kurri Kurri gas power station.

Going against the Liberal Party’s usual policy of giving businesses a hand out, this power station will be funded by tax payers. It will create ten jobs in the region and is estimated to be used in emergencies only … 2% of the time.

Sydney Knitting Nannas and Friends will be protesting against the Kurri Kurri power station at the top of Martin Place near Parliament House next Wednesday 9 June from 11am to 1pm. All welcome to join us as we sing, dance, advocate against the project and hold our placards high.

In the meantime write a submission objecting to the Hunter Power Project – Construction and operation of a 750 megawatt (MW) gas fired power station, electrical switchyard and ancillary infrastructure at Kurri Kurri. Submissions due Wednesday 9 June.
