No new coal: Let’s bury HRL once and for all

Copyright: Michael Bainbridge

On the eve of the Federal Government decision that could make or break HRL, the proposed new coal-fired power station for Victoria, it’s up to us to convince the politicians that in 2012, new coal-fired power stations are a dud investment.

In 2007, the Howard Government awarded HRL a grant of $100 million. But 5 years later, HRL have failed to meet the conditions of the grant and no money has changed hands – yet. Now this funding is under review.

JOIN US at 12:30pm Wednesday 1 February at Parliament House, Spring St, Melbourne, to tell the Prime Minister and Premier:

Say NO to funding this polluting new coal-fired power station, and YES to clean renewable energy.

Speakers include Mr. Kelvin Thomson, ALP Member for Wills and Mr. Adam Bandt, Greens Member for Melbourne.

With you at the rally, MPs from across party lines supporting us, and over 12,000 of your hand written signatures on our petition, we can show the federal and state governments that HRL is a dud investment.

Together we can convince the Gillard Government to withdraw their $100 million, and put it into renewable energy instead.

But we need you to join us!

Please, make sure you’re with us on the 1st February.
