The Coal Action Network Aotearoa's Keep the Coal in the Hole Summer Festival is now open for registration - and we hope you will join us in Southland in January 2012 to tell the Government and Solid Energy, loud and clear, that Southland lignite has to stay in the ground.

For more information and to register online go to: http://nocoalsummerfest.org.nz/information

Of course, the earlier people register the easier it is for us to plan ahead, so we are offering a generous discount to anyone who signs up before 20 December.

About the festival:

The Keep the Coal in the Hole Summer Festival will be held in Mataura, 20-23rd January 2012, on the farm of lignite opponent Mike Dumbar, half a kilometre from the pilot briquetting plant now being built.

We are excited to be organising a four day festival to stand alongside the people of Southland and build a movement around climate justice. There will be family camping, live music, fun for the kids, big cook-ups, visits to the proposed lignite mine, workshops on strategy, information from various groups actively campaigning against coal, training in non-violent direct action, videos, and an Open Day in Mataura with speakers and discussion groups on the issues relating to lignite.

Location / Venue: 
153 Craig Road, Mataura, Southland
