It has been about 12 months since we at GetUp! launched the Better Power campaign, and so far we have encouraged 12,000 people to switch their household electricity away from Australia's biggest polluters.
Farmers and residents from Gloucester on the mid north coast, under siege from coal-seam gas (CSG) exploration, will be joined by campaigners from Lock the Gate and GetUp! in Lismore and Mullumbimby tomorrow and Saturday to update northern rivers locals on the ongoing fight against the controversial industry.
Northern Rivers residents are being urged to ditch energy retailers that support the coal seam gas industry.
The Lock the Gate group has joined forces with Getup, the online advocacy organization, to promote a ‘Better Power’ campaign to the region.
