Coal Seam Gas – Music to Soothe the Mining Beast (28-30 June, 2012)

Editor’s Note: If you’re in the Northern Rivers area of NSW, Australia (or if you can otherwise make it!), please support this important initiative!

Coal Seam Gas (CSG) mining, or ‘fracking’ (see here and here), has potential to impact adversely on the natural environment and community.

In response to the threat of growth of the damaging CSG mining industry a troupe of volunteers based in Lismore, NSW has embarked on an ambitious musical educational adventure.

CSG The Musical is being produced along the lines of a musical theatrical extravaganza with humour, satire and high energy theatre to provide education and entertainment.

On show at the Lismore Workers Club on Thursday 28 June to Saturday 30 June the fun filled fast facts and laughter will raise much need funds for the battle against the damaging CSG industry.

  1. I am glad to see this amount of information getting out there, i get it through my CSG google Alert.
    There is not enough about this issue ion the regular day to day TV news.

    We need to be hearing about this as much as we hear about the carbon tax or climate change.
    this is the most important issue since colonization and the governments are only interested in the $$$$ they get from it.

    We need to be seeing it on the 6.00 p m news more often, before we all become methane breathers.
