Energy Justice Victoria and Friends of the Earth Melbourne have launched a campaign for No New Fossil Fuels in Victoria. We know that we are in a climate crisis and that we cannot afford any new fossil fuel developments, and across Victoria communities are standing up to fossil fuels to protect their health, their farmland, and their environment.
To kick off this campaign Energy Justice will be going to the regional communities on the frontlines of fossil fuels in Victoria.
We would like to invite people to the tour to listen to the stories from the frontline, hear their alternate, positive visions beyond fossil fuels, and how Victorians from outside the frontlines can support these communities.
