Phillip Dowse, Anne Kennedy, Vanessa Hickey, Sonya Marshall at DEG Walgett 10/12/15

DEG hosted a discussion with the Walgett Aboriginal community 10/12/15 re growing concerns about Coal Seam Gas mining in the Pilliga Forest.

DEG invited Anne Kennedy from the Great Artesian Basin Protection Group, and Sonya Marshall from the North West Alliance and Lock The Gate to speak. DEG is keen to comment on Santos' EIS for the Narrabri Gas Project when it is released for comment, and is concerned about the impacts on our community's safety, health, water supplies, food security and biodiversity.
