Victorian Gas Roadmap with Freja Leonard

On todays show Jack and Sam speak with Freja Leonard from the No More Gas Collective about Victoria's role in Gas.

The interview touches on the role gas plays in Australia, the way it's exported and a recent (staggering) proposal for a floating gas terminal to be built in Geelong. The terminal boasts a location within the advised safe 3km radius residental housing, an immediate threat to local bay wildlife and a shallow attempt to prop up the crumbling Australian gas industry.

Help show solidarity to the people, flora and fauna that will be effected by the project by sending an email to your MP to TAKE ACTION on Victorian gas.
