City/Town: Hazelwood Victoria
Take action for renewable energy.!
Join what will hopefully be the BIGGEST protest of its kind- EVER!!!
Hazelwood is one of the dirtiest coal stations in the industrialised world, spewing an average of 17 million tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere every year.
Hazelwood was scheduled to be shut down this year, however it was given a life-line by the ALP state government in 2005 allowing it to continue operation until 2031. We need to remove that lifeline and instead support renewable energy, extending the life line to our planet.
On Sunday September 13, 2009, thousands of people from across Victoria, and Australia, will converge on Hazelwood for a day of peaceful community mass civil disobedience to Switch off Hazelwood and Switch off Coal – we will be taking direct action for renewable energy.
Camping and entertainment Saturday.
Make history, be there!
One comment from outraged Melbournian “I just got my water bill which despite my usage going down has gone up a huge amount. I think this is for the useless desal and north/south pipeline. My friends are cheesed off too.”

If you are still concerned that the Government’s ‘Water Plan’ isn’t in the best interests of Victorians, there is something that you can do this weekend. Watershed Victoria are letterboxing Maxine Morand’s electorate of Mt. Waverley this Saturday, the 27th June. Please read on if you are able to come along and help out, even if only for an hour or two.
If you are coming from Melbourne, just turn up at the Pinewood Reserve (Melways 70 G4) between 10.30 and 11.00am.
Letterboxing will finish around 4.00pm, and there will be a BBQ in the Pinewood Reserve after some good footwork.
If you are coming from Wonthaggi there will be a bus and car pooling leaving Wonthaggi at 8.30am from the information centre. Everyone to meet up in the electorate at the Pinewood Reserve (Melways 70 G4) at 10.30 to 11.00am to collect boxes of flyers and maps. Ring Neil on 0413 902571 (or email email@example.com) to book a seat on the bus, or just turn up at 8.30 and hope for a lift (if you have spare room in a car traveling to Melbourne please call by the information centre to see if anyone is looking for a lift).
Watershed hopes to distribute 20,000 postcards, folded into a flyer. Three quarters of these have been folded, ready to go, but more help is still needed to fold the remainder. If you are able to help with folding and addressing the postcards could you contact Watershed and they will try to get the materials to you asap.
Watershed will also be screening the, “Out of the Blue” documentary, that has followed the anti-desal campaign so far, with a Q & A session, in the electorate, in the following week. If you aren’t available for the letterboxing but would be able to hand out flyers for the documentary screening at railway stations or supermarkets (ideally one male and one female), please contact Watershed.
Bring a pack or bag to hold the letterboxing material, the weather forcast is good so a coat or umbrella might not be needed, sensible walking shoes and lots of good cheer!
