Gasfield Free Byron Shire Action Group has developed from the community group that co-ordinated the survey of Byron Shire townships and villages. That almost-completed process revealed a 97.8% average approval for maintaining Byron Shire in a gasfield-free conditon! The Action Group operates independently, under the general policies and aims of Lock the Gate and Gasfield Free Northern Rivers, to provide information to the Byron Shire community and promote relevant local action and events. The group is also widening its focus to support regional and national fossil-free initiatives, with initiatives like the support-raiser for the blockade at Maules Creek in the Leard State Forest, in January ‘14. The Gasfield Free Byron Shire Action Group is non-hierarchical, informal and consensus-based.

“It’s time to stop letting corporate power make the most important decisions our planet faces. We don’t have the money to compete with those corporations, but we do have our bodies…. in this case we are the conservatives, and… our foes – who would change the composition of the atmosphere – are the dangerous radicals.” Bill McKibben, Contact Gasfield Free Byron Shire.
