City Limits - Environmental Destruction: Mining in West Papua + Saving Western Port Wetlands from Gas Plant Plans

Wednesday, 8 July 2020 - 9:00am to 10:00am

This week is energy week on City Limits!

We speak with activist Ronny Kareni about the disastrous impact of the mining industry in West Papua (and Australia's involvement), the ongoing struggle of indigenous communities to protect land and people from imperialist destruction, and the BLM movement in Indonesia.

Later we invite Julia Stockigt, secretary of Save Westernport Inc, to discuss the social, safety, and environmental impacts of AGL's proposal to import and process gas, and to construct a 60 km gas pipeline which means probable destruction for their Ramsar-listed wetland of international importance. 

The Public Comments period for the EES (Environmental Effects Statement) on AGL’s proposal on the Mornington Peninsula will run until August 26 2020.

Here is an article on the EES by Save Westernport Inc.

If you want to say NO to AGL's gas plant, here is a video on how to access and comment on AGL's EES (You can make a submission about the AGL Crib Point proposal using the online form on the EngageVic website here).

Here is a copy of the EES from AGL, and here is a list of the company's convictions and fines, up until January 2020. 

Wednesday 9:00am to 10:00am
Urban environment issues, analysing government services, both federal and state and local campaigns.
