IMPORTANT NOTICE: TO ALL SUPPORTERS OF THE HALT THE SALT CAMPAIGN

EPA OPINION ON SALT PROJECT TO BE PUBLICLY RELEASED DURING JULY


Our fight to save Exmouth Gulf is about to enter a critical stage and the assistance of all our supporters will be vital over the next month.

The Halt the Salt Alliance has been advised that the Environmental Protection Authority will be releasing its formal opinion on the salt project during July.

The EPA Bulletin is extremely important because it will be our first indication of the advice that will be provided to the State Government.

Once the EPA Bulletin is released there will be a two-week period when Appeals can be lodged. The Appeals Convenor then hears these Appeals and can seek further information before making a final recommendation to the Environment Minister.

If the EPA indicates support for the project going ahead the Alliance will mount a vigorous Appeal on the community’s behalf. If the EPA indicates it doesn’t support the project then we can expect the company to also mount an Appeal.

In either scenario we will need all our supporters to make their views known quickly and strongly to Western Australian Premier Alan Carpenter and his Environment Minister David Templeman.

The Alliance remains confident that we have mounted a strong argument against the project citing overwhelming scientific evidence that the environmental risks to this pristine ecosystem are too great.

Whatever happens, we must continue to make our views strongly known to the Premier and his Ministers. If we don’t raise our voices, there is a real danger that this unique environment may suffer for generations to come.

At this stage we are asking all supporters to please be prepared. We will inform you of the exact timeframe for the Bulletin’s release and how you can make representations to the Minister, the Premier and other MPs during the coming Appeals process.

As this will be a new representation, all previous submitters will be able to make a new submission. The campaign very much hopes that you will again do that when the Bulletin is released and we can prepare an appropriate response.

Your support is vital to the success of the campaign. Please prepare to act during July!

What you can do to support the campaign

Growing numbers of people from Australia and overseas, determined to help protect this unique environment, are making their views known to the Western Australian Government.

Personalised letters, faxes or phone calls to politicians are also very important and the Alliance website has a full list of contact details.

Another good way of putting your views across is to write a Letter to the Editor and again the Alliance has details of how to make contact with the State’s major newspapers or you can spread the word via your own local community newspaper  

You can find out more about the extensive support for the campaign by visiting the About Us and Links sections on the website.

Email your friends and associates asking them to participate.
