The Darkinjung Local Aboriginal Land Council has vowed to continue its fight against the proposed Wallarah 2 Coal Project.
The Land Council has announced that it will hold a rally outside the Planning Assessment Commission’s (PAC) public hearing on April 5.
Darkinjung have implored the community to join them at the rally, which will begin at 8:00am at Wyong Golf Club.
The PAC hearing follows the recent decision by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment to recommend the approval of the Wallarah 2 Coal Mine.
Darkinjung said the draft approval disregards environmental and social impacts that would ensue, should the project be given the green light.
“Darkinjung will continue to protest the negative impact that the Wallarah 2 Coal Mine will have on our lands,” said Darkinjung Chairperson, Ms Tina West.
“We are calling on local NSW Members of Parliament to support the Central Coast community by joining us at the rally,” Ms West said.
“Their support will go a long way when it comes to this fight.
“The solidarity of community is a powerful thing and we have one statement for the Government – our land, our rights, our future,” Ms West said.
