Time to get boots on the ground and make ourselves heard – sign this petition to stop T4:
The NSW Government will soon decide whether to approve a fourth coal terminal for Newcastle. This terminal (T4) would increase the volume of coal exported from Newcastle from 210 to 330 million tonnes each year. It would also double the dust pollution from coal trains, piles and loaders that people breath in suburbs from the Hunter Valley coal mines to the port.
NSW Planning Minister Brad Hazzard will assess the T4 proposal in coming weeks. Without strong, vocal and sustained opposition from the community, he is likely to recommend they approve it. We need to get onto the three key decision makers right now – Mr Hazard, Member for Newcastle Tim Owen, and Premier Barry O’Farrell. This is our key window of time to persuade them not to approve T4.
