From 7pm back at Café Le Monde we'll have dinner and dancing as we Rock the Gate Noosa with Hayden Hack. See you there! WHAT IS FRACKING? Fracking uses explosives and high pressure water with toxic chemicals to shatter underground rock and release methane gas.

Fracking contaminates drinking water with methane and radioactive toxins, depletes aquifers, leaves immense amounts of toxic waste, triggers earthquakes, harms aquatic life and kills dolphins and whales. WHY LOCK THE GATE SUNSHINE COAST? Lock The Gate Sunshine Coast, a regional branch of Lock The Gate Alliance, is calling for the Sunshine Coast to become a frack-free zone, protected from fracking and coal mining.

Lock The Gate Sunshine Coast is also raising funds to help Lock the Gate Alliance assist Queensland families who are afflicted by fracking ♥ BE INFORMED AND TAKE ACTION! KEEP THE SUNSHINE COAST FRACK-FREE!
