Rally to Declare Victoria Gasfield Free

CGFV_Square.jpgWith the state inquiry into unconventional gas coming to a close we need to make our message clearer than ever before, that unconventional gas will never be welcome in Victoria.

Join the over 60 communities that have already declared themselves for a rally that has been over 3 years in the making!

We can't wait to see you midday on Sunday 20th September at the State Library to declare our state Gasfield Free!

From country to city, we come together to protect our land, our water and our health from unconventional gas. Help us send a clear message that fracking and gasfields will never be welcome in Victoria.

We'll be meeting at the front of State Library @ 12pm before marching to Parliament to deliver our declaration.

Follow and tweet using the hashtag #GasfieldFreeVic.

Debbie is a founding member of Gasfield Free Bairnsdale which she helped to establish almost 2 years ago. So far, nearly 800 people have been surveyed and 9 communities have been declared gasfield free in that area of East Gippsland.
