  BETRAYED BY THE
O'FARRELL GOVERNMENT
   
 

FOR the past 15 years the Australian Coal Alliance (ACA) has continued to wage the war to protect the drinking water catchment and the health of the Central Coast community from the destructiveness of the proposed Wallarah 2 longwall coal mine.

Since majority ownership of Wyong Areas Coal Joint Venture, the group that holds the exploration lease, came under the control of South Korean Government-owned mining giant Kores, and in 2006 the fight the fight was escalated.

The previous Labor Government rejected the Wallarah 2 Coal Mine proposal because of too many uncertainties that the water catchment of the Central Coast would not be destroyed and the health of the people  put in danger from fine airborne coal dust particles.

The Liberal Party prior to the 2011 State Election promised in writing not once, but three times that if elected they would not allow the Wallarah 2 mine to proceed. They promised to introduce legislation into the Parliament to protect the water catchment area from coal mining. Barry O'Farrell stood up at a public rally in front of the electronic media and said, "the next Liberal/National Party Government will not allow mining to occur here... no ifs, no buts, a guarantee".

The Liberal Party ran an election campaign on the Central Coast on the back on the anti coal campaign, reinforcing their absolute promise. After the election Minister for Energy and the Central Coast Chris Hartcher said on ABC Radio, "No candidate would have been elected had they not opposed the coal mine".

Barry O'Farrell have proven to be untrustworthy. He lied to the people of the Central Coast and has allowed the Wallarah 2 Coal Project to submit a new application. Barry O'Farrel is prepared to put the Central Coast's major drinking water catchment at risk. He has demonstrated right across NSW that he is no more than a crumby politician and someone who is unworthy of the position he holds.
