A major public meeting in Kew to challenge the actions of this state government on the environment during the last two years

Here is the most important thing you can do now to send a strong message to Ted Baillieu and his government that their climate policies are missing in action, and that their throttling of the wind industry and ludicrous, irresponsible plans for brown coal exports are disastrous.

Let them hear loud and clear that these failures plus the never-ending wind back of protections for forests, green wedges and endangered flora and fauna will cost them at the next election.

A powerful alliance of environmental groups - the Victorian National Parks Association, The Wilderness Society, Environment Victoria and Friends of the Earth - are running a public meeting on our patch on Tuesday 27 November to highlight these failures on the anniversary of the second year of the Baillieu Government.

On Tuesday 27 November, it will be exactly two years since this government took office. It's time for people like us to act, to make sure the next two years are better than the last. Please be there and bring friends (and alert your networks)

Speakers include:
Professor David Lindenmayer, a highly respected ecologist.
Two daughters of Sir Rupert Hamer, the former Liberal Premier of Victoria and the architect of Victoria's green wedges, speaking about their father's legacy.

Date, time and place:
Tuesday 27 November
6.00 -7.30pm
Kew Heights Sports Club (bowling club near Carey, and right next to
Preshil), 397 Barkers Rd, Kew (Mel.Ref 45 H9)
Please be there and swell the numbers.
