No Coal to Hydrogen in Westernport RALLY | ALP and AUKUS

Wednesday, 30 August 2023 - 9:00am to 10:00am

 This morning on City Limits we hear from the rally held from two of the speakers who attended: Save Westernport Vice-President Jane Carnegie, and No More Gas campaigner with FOE Freja Leonard.

 They update us on the remarkable turnout of supporters who attended Victorian Parliament steps in the pouring rain, including some 20 Westernport locals who travelled to Melbourne in the wee hours. They denounce the pipe dream of a project, from billions of tonnes of new emissions for Victoria and the flimsy CCS technology underpinning the scheme, to threats for valuable RAMSAR-listed wetland at the site and the dangers of Hydrogen already experienced in the pilot shipment.

 Later, we speak with an attendee of the recent ALP national conference, Jack Howard from Labor against War, a grassroots network of ALP members opposed to Australia being led into another US-led war.

 He gives an analysis of why the AUKUS deal was passed despite many dissenting voices within the party, and gives a detailed explanation of the debate at the conference, the factions and individuals involved, and the Orwellian doublespeak pervading the mainstream media and government discourse on the issue of 'defence'.
