On Sunday 7 March, we’re making a splash by throwing our wetsuits on at home!
Together with Surfrider Foundation Mornington Peninsula, we’re holding a big day of action to send Planning Minister Richard Wynne a clear message from the local community: we do not want AGL’s polluting gas import terminal in Westernport Bay and the Minister must reject this dirty plan, once and for all.
Minister Wynne is due to make a decision on whether to approve AGL’s polluting gas import terminal in March. He’s already heard from the experts just how bad the proposal is for Westernport Bay. Now he needs to see the local community taking a visible stand!
We are going to flood Minister Wynne with thousands of messages from the community and make some noise on social media.
1. Send a message to Minister Wynne
Let Minister Wynne know why Westernport Bay needs to be protected from AGL’s dirty gas plan! Fill in the form below to submit a message online or deliver a letter to one of our drop-off points (locations to come) on Sunday 7 March.
Your message doesn’t have to be long (1-2 sentences is fine), but should be unique and personal to you. Make sure your message is polite, not rude or offensive – angry messages don’t help our cause.
You could include one of the following points about the project:
2. Share your message on social media on 7 March
We know that tagging politicians on social media gets their attention – so let’s make sure Wynne and his followers hear us loud and clear.
Get creative and post a photo or video of yourself in your wetsuit with a message for Wynne. Make it as fun and hilarious as you can! Using the hashtag #WetsuitsForWesternport, we’ll be sharing the community’s messages throughout the day.
