Yellow Ribbon Day – Charcoalition Media Release Jan 24th 2002

Responses to the environmental impact statement (EIS) on the Charcoal Factory have been sent in and the formal time for comment on the proposal has closed. Now its time to come together and show our elected representatives the level of concern about the proposed Charcoal Factory that communities for a Charcoal Free South Coast has.

Charcoalition is having a Yellow Ribbon Day at Mogo on Saturday 2 February at 12 noon. “It’s time to let Premier Bob Carr know that we have not gone away, or given up any of the communities resolve to oppose the Factory,” said Chris Kowal spokesperson for Charcoalition. Mr Kowal went on to say “The Community has sent a very clear and strong message to Government that we do not want this polluting monstrosity in our midst. The Government has received a record number of submissions from the community with the great majority expressing strong opposition to the proposal”.

“So wear something yellow, decorate your vehicle, yourself, your children and the dog and come along and have some fun. There will be entertainment, sausage sizzle and some yellow ribbon day specials will be available at selected shops”, said Mr Kowal.
