Aussies Against Fracking
(AAF) was created as a response to the gross industrialisation of rural,
regional and some sectors of urban Australia by coal seam gas mining (CSG). The
movement was founded as a platform and vehicle to enable members of the
entertainment industry to voice their opposition to CSG. Tonight's concert is to
coincide with Yoko Ono's (Founder of US "Artists Against Fracking") Australian visit.
"I'm thrilled to hear my fellow activists and friends in Australia are taking a
stand against fracking in your beautiful country. Don't let them destroy your
precious water and land. I'm with you in spirit in your fight. Stay strong. I
love you! Yoko"
We are in a critical time. There is an urgent need to protect our country and
our future from CSG. Already in affected areas within Australia, rivers are
irreparably poisoned, air is toxic and people are sick. All this is happening
while the industry is still in its infancy, and yet developing at frightening
speed with full support from our government.
