Boycott Tahmoor

Boycott Tahmoor

The Independent Planning Commission is holding a public hearing on the Tahmoor South Coal mine expansion.

But the system is rigged to favour big mining and the Commission has been knee-capped by the Planning Minister. They’ve been bulldozing over communities, no matter how many thousands of submissions opposing projects are made, and people have had enough.

Please send a very quick email to the Commission to tell them you’re boycotting their latest hearing on the Tahmoor Coal expansion.  

They’re expecting dozens of people to register for the hearing by Friday, but instead we’ll have thousands telling them we’re not going to play ball.

Please send a very quick email to the Commission to tell them you’re boycotting their latest hearing on the Tahmoor Coal expansion.  

They’re expecting dozens of people to register for the hearing by Friday, but instead we’ll have thousands telling them we’re not going to play ball.

Explain in your own words why you’re not participating in this rigged process.  You might want to raise that:

  • They’ve ignored thousands of submissions opposing projects

  • They’ve approved projects that will emit over 1 billion tonnes of greenhouse gases

  • They’re just rubber stamping the pro-mining agenda of the planning department (which has recommended 12 new coal and gas projects in a row for approval over the last 18 months).

  • They’re removing our merits appeal rights and replacing it with a sham process
