FARMERS’ FORUM ON LIBERAL MINING BILL

posted in: Save Our Food Bowl | 0
MAITLAND – CENTRAL YORKE FOOTBALL CLUB
Thursday 27th Sept.,  6.30 – 9.30 pm.

CHAIR:  Mr. Robert Brokenshire

 

IF A MINING OR EXPLORATION COMPANY KNOCKS ON YOUR DOOR SEEKING ACCESS TO YOUR LAND:

  • Will this Bill give you the right to veto that access? NO
  • Does this Bill strengthen your legal rights if a miner takes you to court? NO
  • Does this Bill make is cheaper and easier for miners to operate on YP? YES

 

WHY IT IS VITAL YOU ATTEND

By failing to protect freehold land this Bill threatens the future of agriculture in our region.  YP is a prime target for large-scale exploration and mining because it is rich in copper.  Many of us have already been confronted by miners wanting to move onto our land.  If this has not happened to you yet, it could!

Our calls for greater protection for farmers’ rights have been ignored by both political parties.  This could be our last chance to put pressure on the Liberal Government to change this Bill.

We cannot sit back and let it pass through Parliament in its current form. We need to act NOW.  Please attend this important forum and make our politicians listen to us.  

 

CONVENORS:  John Kennett, Graham Mattschoss, Ben Wundersitz, Elden Oster, Joy Wundersitz, Stephen Lodge,
