Call on the Premier to stop taking Victoria backwards on our environment

It’s fair to say that the Baillieu Government’s performance on the environment this past year has been anything but forward thinking. (We’re sure you’ve noticed!). So after 12 disappointing months we're marching backwards to demonstrate the direction the Premier is taking us.

Like you, we believe the Victorian Government is responsible for ensuring a healthy environment for all Victorians to enjoy. The decisions they make today will be the legacy our children have to live with into the future. With the many challenges our environment faces, we need visionary leadership to take us into the next decade and so far, the Baillieu Government has been anything but. So along with our friends from the Victorian National Parks Association, The Wilderness Society and Friends of the Earth, we’re organising a rally.

Join us and hundreds of other concerned Victorians to turn things around for our environment.

Join us!

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:

Baillieu is anti free market

In their rush to support their mates from the big end of town, the Baillieu Government is forgetting about the free market principles which supposedly underpin the Liberal Party. In killing off the wind farm industry in Victoria and winding back solar, they are eliminating the competition for coal fired electricity. Private enterprise is building the wind farms with not a cent of taxpayer money, yet the HRL coal-fired power station at Morwell would well and truly have been abandoned by now, if it was not for the $50 million of State Government money and the $100 million from the Feds. Private enterprise will not have a bar of this enterprise. So now we have all this private Australian money being invested in South Australia and in South America. In the meantime the price of wind and solar electricity is coming down and coal fired is going up. This myopic, elitist set in Spring St at the moment are condemning us to a dirty, greenhouse gas proliferating and costly future, just to help out their financial backers from big industry.
