Protestors on Peaks

4 October, 2011

It's time to get creative in fighting the threat of Coal seam gas and open cut coal - it's time to connect the spectacular natural assets directly with the fight to protect them. The 'Scenic RIm' region is in South-East Queensland, just south of Brisbane and tucked in behind the Gold Coast. More than 80% of the Scenic Rim is covered by coal and coal seam gas exploration permits. As part of a national day of action, landholders and supporters will become "Protestors on Peaks" rallying on the Scenic Rim’s namesake mountain peaks, with huge banners carrying a united “no” message to coal seam gas and open pit coal mining in the region. Join hundreds of farmers, landholders, local tourism operators and supporters and get active and united in protecting the natural assets of the Scenic Rim, and the agricultural industry which provides the scenic vistas which tourism depends on in the Shire.

Where: The 'Scenic Rim', South-East Queensland.
When: 11am, Tuesday 4 October, 2011.
