Stop CSG Sydney is screening a short video, made in May, by some of the key organisers of the successful Bentley Blockade (near Lismore).
It looks at how the Bentley Blockade grew to be so potent, and pivotal to the success of the Gasfield Free Northern Rivers campaign to stop Metgasco.
It covers why the NSW government was then, and is now, so determined to override the wishes of the vast majority of the residents of the Northern Rivers? How did the community become so organised? Why did they have so much support?
We believe there are some important lessons that can be learned from studying other community campaigns against CSG.
Stop CSG Sydney will also be holding its AGM on this day.
Please join us from 3pm-5pm Sunday, 28th September 2014 at Seaview Hall, 12-14 Seaview St, Dulwich Hill.
Afternoon tea will be provided.
Stop CSG Sydney will be holding two stalls this weekend, at two of Sydney’s great community fairs;
DULWICH HILL VILLAGE FAIR

RANDWICK ECO-LIVING FAIR
Sunday 14th September – 10.30am to 3.30pm
Randwick Community Centre – 27 Munda St, Randwick
The Randwick City Council’s tenth Eco-living Fair is a free event that provides the perfect opportunity for the community to come together to learn about the benefits of living a sustainable lifestyle.
Now firmly established on the calendar, it is fair to say the Eco-Living Fair is the premiere green event of the east.
Held in the unique setting of the Randwick Community Centre, surrounded by the Randwick Environment Park, the Eco-Living Fair has something for the whole family to enjoy with advice and information on offer from local community groups and green industry experts, delicious healthy food, free entertainment and kids activities and a variety of market stalls selling quality wares.
Many local partner organisations attend to provide information and conduct formal and informal talks and workshops based on the environmental issues that affect our community in their homes, at school and in the workplace.
