~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, 
Victor Komarovsky
And the teams at Environment Victoria and Save Westernport

Help deliver the No AGL postcard petitions to Brett Redman

Help deliver the No AGL postcard petitions to Brett Redman

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 Clarendon Street at 10am. We’ll finish at about 11am.

Where:
Mullet Street, Hastings, VIC 3915, Australia

When:
Wed 12/06/2019 at 8:00 am
