Going backwards under Baillieu

Join the Backwards March and call on the Premier to stop taking Victoria backwards!

WHEN: Sunday, 13 November from 1.00 – 2.30pm
WHERE: Parliament House, Spring Street, Melbourne
WHY: In just one year Premier Baillieu has taken Victoria decades backwards on the environment:

* Cattle trampling our national parks
* New wind farms blocked
* Co2 emissions target ignored
* Endangered species habitat logged
* New coal-fired power station approved
* Green Wedges threatened
* Westernport destruction fast-tracked

Premier Baillieu said he would ‘fix the problems, and build the future’, but when it comes to our environment his government has created new problems and is threatening out future!

His government has no formal environment or climate change policy, and no clear vision for a more sustainable Victoria.

So after 12 disappointing months we’re marching backwards to demonstrate the direction the Premier is taking us.

JOIN HUNDREDS OF OTHER CONCERNED VICTORIANS TO TURN THINGS AROUND FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT AND ASK: WHERE IS YOUR PLAN PREMIER?

Organised by Victorian National Parks Association, The Wilderness Society, Environment Victoria and Friends of the Earth.

  1. also forgot aerial baiting in the habitat of the critically endangered spotted-tailed quoll…
    and anglesea coal mine expansion…

  2. Dr. Seuss will be there to talk about the localised health impacts from coal mining / burning and more broadly, from climate change.

    ‘Dinger Bell’ will be there to talk about the impact on the landscape (both real and imagined [WTF]) of coal mining, urban development in green wedges and the heritage values of national parks.

    Kathy Russell CPA will be there to talk about infrasound (and other sounds you can’t hear) from mining, boilers, generators, chainsaws and graders.

    1. I look forward to a massive Landscape Guardians presence at the rally given their deep committment to protecting the landscape. I also look forward to Richmond winning the Grand Final next year.
