Rock the Gate CSG Free Event - 12th May Lismore

The push by big money in collusion with state and federal governments to force CSG mining onto the North Coast for corporate profit is meeting some resistance. Surprise, surprise.

There will be a huge rally mobilising and inspiring local opposition to CSG mining at Riverside Park in Lismore this Saturday, May 12, from 9am to 4pm.

Rock the Gate (nice pun on the Lock the Gate movement) will feature musicians, poets, speakers and comedians who are donating their talent and time to this essential cause.

The resistance in this area has inspired performers from far afield as well as local ones to give their time.
Dubmarine and Steady Eddy are both coming from Queensland to support the cause.

The music starts at 9am. There'll be a march starting from Riverside Park at 10.20am and then progressing through the CBD. After that the entertainment restarts (11.20am) and continues till 4pm.
Big day. Big issue. Be there.

Performing acts include Dubmarine, OKA, Round Mountain Girls, Rene Simone featuring Raz Bin Sam, Mick McHugh, Mandy Nolan, Jimmy Willing & Davey Bob, Ramsay, Steady Eddy, Monkey and the Fish, Luke Vassella, Peter Lehner and the Winsome Gospel Choir, Andrea Soler, Nathan Peachy, Rhett Brambleby, Inside Outlaw, Back Deck Music, Barkersvale Brothers, Strangers Inc, and Rebecca Rushbrook.
