Protest Oct 10 against coal, for renewables

Protesters will also call for a “just transition” away from coal for workers in the industry …[meaning that coal workers] would be guaranteed “green jobs”, through the development of renewable energy and energy-efficiency manufacturing facilities.

Protest to target Hazelwood, Green Left Weekly, September 18, 2010 By Chris Peterson, Melbourne, On October 10, climate activists will converge on the Hazelwood power station in the Latrobe Valley in eastern Victoria. They will use mirrors to try to create Victoria’s “first solar thermal power” station at the Hazelwood gate, to show solar is a viable alternative………..

Protesters will also call for a “just transition” away from coal for workers in the industry. A just transition would mean such workers were guaranteed “green jobs”, through the development of renewable energy and energy-efficiency manufacturing facilities.

“This could include manufacturing of energy-efficient products, such as solar hot water heaters”, Murray said.

The October 10 action is endorsed by groups such as Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, Beyond Zero Emissions, Monash Student Union and several climate action groups.
