Not Very Fracking Byron!

Coal Seam Gas Mining in our back yard? We don’t think so.

In fact… A VERY BIG BYRON – WE DON’T THINK SO! If there is anywhere in this country that is going to object to something so devastatingly major…it will be the community of Byron Bay. Two thousand strong voices rallied together, unified in one big ‘NO FRACKING WAY’. The president of the Bsane body behind the rally, Anthea Amore, did a brilliant job organising the massive crowd, as did her counterparts… especially when it came to producing a reverse Mexican wave (a sequential collapsing of marchers after taking a drink of ‘fracked’ water from their water bottles). Arj Barker (the MC) was passionate in his delivery, and hilariously so when his American accent designated the premier of NSW as Bury O’Farrell. Arj was serious… Byron was serious… look out anyone who supports such an insidious attack on our basic rights… the right to clean water and the right to everything that flows from it!
