The Advance Renewables data is: 3,600 jobs (during construction and installation), and 2,680 ongoing jobs. The renewable scenario will create more energy for the region, more jobs, and save the land, water and the Pilliga. Not to mention save the recharge area of the Great Artesian Basin (the Pilliga Sandstone).

We are all in this fight together, we’re here together because we all care about our country and know that water is valuable and we need to protect it. It’s what sustains us all here in this room today. The land and the waterways are in our songs and story lines, our memories and dreaming, it’s in our blood all of us here.

We have been let down by our leaders but that’s not good enough, we will stand firm, the people will speak and they will not let this happen

We have an obligation to hand over to future generations whats been given to us
