~the people sign~rally for Westernport ~POSTPONED

Like everyone else, Save Westernport and Environment Victoria have been closely following the developments around COVID-19 and public health advice.

To reduce the risk to all of us of being exposed to the virus and ensure that our events are safe for everybody, we have made the decision to postpone the People Sign Beach Rally that was planned for Sunday March 29 on Somers Beach.

Instead, we will be meeting online on March 29 at 7:30pm to discuss our visions for protecting Westernport permanently from heavy industrialisation and pollution. You can RSVP here.

We believe this is the most responsible thing to do to ensure that we are not contributing to the spread of the virus, and to protect our collective health and all those that we have contact with in our daily lives. 

We are disappointed that these circumstances mean we can’t all gather together on March 29th but we are still excited about getting together online to talk about our visions for protecting our Bay permanently from heavy industrialisation and pollution.

You can RSVP here. Here is a how-to guide demonstrating how to use zoom for online meetings. If you would like a call beforehand to discuss how to use zoom, let us know by responding to this email. 

Even though COVID-19 has put a temporary break on our in-person protests and actions we are not giving up the fight. We will simply find new ways to express our outrage together and tell AGL to drop their plans for a gas import terminal in our Bay.

We will confirm new dates for the People Sign so that it can proceed at a later date that is safe for everyone.

Key things for your action now:

  1. RSVP to the zoom call.
  2. Let us know if you need a call from us to help you use zoom.

Can’t make this time? We will host a second webinar. Click here to let us know which time works for you.

If you have any questions, please contact me by responding to this email.

In solidarity,

And the teams at Environment Victoria and Save Westernport

Sign The Pledge – Put AGL On Notice!

Sign The Pledge – Put AGL On Notice!

Click Here to Sign this Pledge and say NO to AGL’s dirty Gas Plan NOW

AGL is still making plans to build a gas import terminal in beautiful Westernport Bay. AGL has admitted that by processing LNG and building their outdated gas pipeline, they would routinely destroy Westernport’s precious wetlands and wildlife.

AGL’s imported gas would produce 30% more carbon than local gas. 

It’s a classic case of profit over people and planet.

That’s why this community says NO!
Save Westernport and Environment Victoria are working with local groups to make sure our voice of opposition is heard.
Take Action, SIGN NOW
We deserve the sustainable energy forms and fair prices that Government and industry have been promising for decades now!

Support the fight to protect Westernport Bay from AGL’s corporate exploitation and unnecessary industry. Now is the time to ramp up pressure and hold AGL accountable for the damage their plans will cause to these precious ecosystems.

As an AGL customer or potential customer, AGL cares about what you say and do. IF YOU DON’T SUPPORT THEIR PLANS, THEN DON’T SUPPORT AGL!
You can use your voice to hit them where it hurts by signing the Pledge NOW 

Send a message to AGL to register your concern as a customer or potential customer; if they want your business, they need to dump their dirty gas project.

On behalf of nine groups including Save Westernport, Phillip Island Conservation Society (PICS), Westernport and Peninsula Protection Council (WPPC), Friends of French Island (FOFI) and Environment Victoria, this open letter was delivered to AGL board members and shareholders at the 2019 AGL annual general meeting.

The joint letter stated that community opposition to this project continues to grow, and demands AGL to DUMP their dirty gas plan.

Now we need to keep the pressure up, and as a customer or potential customer, you can influence what AGL does.

Let’s seize this moment and let AGL know it’s not just shareholders and the local community around Westernport Bay who want AGL to do better on climate – customers and potential customers across Victoria do too.

You can help protect our climate and our precious marine sanctuary by permanently boycotting AGL if they go ahead with this dirty plan.

Put AGL on notice by signing this pledge NOW 

We can make this action even more powerful if we get more people on board. Can you help by sharing this message with five or more  friends? Please follow this link and share it.

Sign this Pledge to say NO to AGL’s dirty Gas Plan

AGL is still making plans to build a polluting and unnecessary gas import terminal in beautiful Westernport Bay, potentially destroying precious wetlands and wildlife in the process.

It’s a classic case of profit over people and planet.

Working with groups like Environment Victoria and Phillip Island Conservation Council (PICS), we’ve managed to delay their project twice, but AGL still refuses to dump their dirty gas plan.

The next year will be key in the fight for Westernport Bay. We need to ramp up pressure and hold AGL accountable for the damage their plans will cause to this precious ecosystem.

As a customer or potential customer, AGL cares about what you say. Take Action NOW and use your voice to hit them where it hurts!

Take Action NOW
Send a message to AGL to register your concern as a customer or potential customer. If they want your business, they have to dump their dirty gas project.

Last week we took the fight to the AGL board at their AGM in Sydney.

On behalf of nine groups including Save Westernport, PICS, Westernport and Peninsula Protection Society (WPPC), and Environment Victoria, an open letter was delivered to AGL board members and shareholders.

The joint letter stated that community opposition to this project continues to grow, and will not go away until AGL bin their dirty gas plan.

But now we need to keep the pressure up, and as a customer or potential customer, you can influence what AGL does.

We need to seize this moment and let them know that it’s not just shareholders and the local community around Westernport Bay who want AGL to do better on climate – customers and potential customers across Victoria do too.

You can help protect our climate and our precious marine sanctuary by permanently blacklisting AGL if they go ahead with this dirty plan.

Take Action NOW

AGL is already feeling the pressure with more than 30 percent of shareholders calling for AGL to close all its coal-burning power stations by 2030 and set climate targets consistent with limiting global warming to two degrees. We are putting the AGL corporation on notice: if they want your business, they have to dump their dirty gas project.
