Spokesperson for Charcoalition, Chris Kowal said, “We encourage local groups and supporting groups from other regions to join the rally and to come up with their own innovative ideas for identifying themselves and displaying their message with banners, signs and dress, etc.”
“These groups will add another dimension to the rally and help to reinforce the message that our community is strong and remind the NSW Government that a Charcoal Factory does not fit in the middle of the Nature Coast.”
The Rally will be held on Saturday, September 21 in Batemans Bay. It will start from Lions Park which is on the South Western side of the Batemans Bay bridge, and people are asked to arrive at 11.00am for a 12 noon start. It will finish at Mackay Park.
