Update 7 August 2018

Dear Members and Supporters

We are deeply grateful for the incredible generosity of so many in our community and beyond - thank you!

After a wonderful trivia night $2,062 was raised, another $1,000 was donated and that means we are down to the last few thousand!!

We are paying the EDO $45,000, which is approx 10% of the full costs to represent our community. We have raised $41,000 and need a further $4,000.

We also have to find costs for extra court issues such as transcribing, any additional expert witnesses costs and any small court costs that may crop up - so we need your help to get our fundraising message out there.

Please share

This has been a relentless campaign for our community and we are almost there! I’d like to give a shout out to the Groundswell team who have been, and still are working almost daily over the last few months to assist the EDO lawyers.

We will let you know what day to attend the court in the Gloucester Soldiers Club (no protests inside) to show strong community opposition to the mine.

Onward to the finish line.

If approved the Rocky Hill Coal Mine will extend mining in the valley for decades.

Schools and hundreds of homes are within the 5km health danger zone of the project’s first stage. Future expansion could be as close as 1km from the built up area of Gloucester.

The source of health and environmental problems will be closer to people and the risks will last longer than the Stratford mine.

In a world of oversupply and industry decline due to energy competition why should another coal mine be imposed on the rural community of Gloucester?
