Climate and coal action rally in Bathurst on 27 April 2022.
We now have a Facebook page for members.
CWEC is still meeting mostly by zoom, but the AGM will hopefully be face-to-face.
And we are also looking for ideas on how to celebrate CWE'S 30 birthday next year.
Our AGM was also by zoom. No change in committee this year.
This protest was to highlight the need to stop opening up areas for coal mining and to take real action to mitigate climate change was really well attended by CWEC representatives from all over the Central West (despite the pouring rain!). Well done guys.
