Wow - what a crowd! Balnarring Community Hall was filled with local residents at the latest Save Westernport public meeting. Around 450 - 500 people attended "SOS Mayday Westernport" on 1st May 2019 to hear the latest on AGL's proposed gas project. See the ABC News Victoria news report here. In attendance were a number of Federal Election candidates who expressed their support for Save Westernport and opposition to AGL. Susie Beveridge (IND), Julia Banks (IND), Joshua Sinclair (ALP), Nathan Lesslie (Greens) and Reade Smith (Sustainable Australia) all voiced their opposition to AGL's gas plans for Westernport Bay and signed a commitment to stop AGL's Gas Terminal. Current Federal Member for Flinders Hon Greg Hunt MP could not attend but a personal statement of support was delivered by local Member for Hastings Neale Burgess. Other speakers included local mussel farmer Michael "Harry" Harris, Western Port Biosphere Executive Officer Greg Hunt (no relation) and Environment Victoria Campaigns Manager Dr. Nick Aberle. The speeches and presentations were both informative and concerning on the potential impacts that AGL's proposed gas import terminal would have on Westernport Bay. Many thanks to all of the Environment Victoria team for helping organise the "SOS Mayday Westernport"...
