No AGL Brett Redman

Help deliver the No AGL postcard petitions to Brett Redman

May 30, 2019

AGL CEO Brett Redman is in Melbourne on 12 June to speak at the Energy Week Conference so Environment Victoria and Save Westernport have taken the opportunity to ask him to meet us and receive our petition of approximately 15,000 signatures. Brett says one of his top three strategic goals for this year is social licence. He's busy talking about it all around the country so get on the bus with us to let him know that he absolutely has not got social licence for this damaging proposal. Make sure he gets a strong message that Westernport communities remain defiant and strong in our opposition. It's just a few hours of your day and you might be that one extra person that makes all the difference. Don't think one voice doesn't count. The only way to change things is to turn up. (besides we'll have a good time on the bus to and from Melbourne meeting each other and sharing experiences and knowledge.) Look forward to seeing you. Book your bus tickets here PS. If you haven't already signed the petition, do it now! Oh, and if you'd prefer to meet us there, meet at main entrance to MCEC on...

Election Candidates Support Save Westernport 1st May 2019

May 5, 2019

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"...
