COMMUNITY group Protect Our Water Alliance staged a protest outside the offices of Wollongong Coal Ltd at Towradgi last week.
A small, but vocal group of around 20 protesters called for an end to mining in the Greater Sydney Water Catchment and urgent climate action, which includes leaving coal in the ground, during Wollongong Coal’s annual general meeting on Thursday.
Wollongong Coal Ltd operates Wongawilli mine and the recently approved Russell Vale Mine expansion, both of which extract coal from beneath the “protected” special areas of the water catchment for Sydney and Wollongong.
