Rally to oppose AGL gas import and Kawasaki projects in Western Port Bay

rally_for_westernport.jpgTwo project proposals – the Crib Point AGL gas import project and the Kawasaki Hydrogen Energy Supply pilot – have raised community concerns over the environmental, social and economic risks to the values of Western Port Bay.

Save Westernport and Westernport & Peninsula Protection Council are hosting a rally supported by Environment Victoria, the Victorian National Parks Association, Friends of the Earth and Blue Wedges Coalition.

Sunday July 1, at the Hastings Foreshore.

The rally will voice concerns over two proposals:         

  • Crib Point AGL project floating regasification proposal which will ship liquefied natural gas (LNG) from around the globe to a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) at Crib Point;
  • The Kawasaki coal-to-hydrogen pilot project to export hydrogen to Japan out of Hastings.

The risk from the increase in development and shipping from both of these projects will threaten the high conservation and economic value of Western Port Bay.             

The rally will take place at the Fred Smith Reserve, Hastings Foreshore this Sunday 1st July at 1pm.           

We encourage all concerned community members to join to oppose these two projects.  

There is a facebook event page for the rally available here.
