Save Our Coast holds celebratory gathering

Save Our Coast will hold a community gathering at 7pm tonight (Monday), March 16, at the Umina Surf Life Saving Club to celebrate its "win against seismic testing" and to celebrate two years of campaigning.

The evening will feature the chair of the Senate Inquiry on Seismic Testing, Senator Peter Whish-Wilson, as keynote speaker and other speakers including NSW Greens upper house MP Ms Abigail Boyd.

There will be a screening of the Save Our Coast film that gives an insight into the campaign so-far.

"We're holding an evening of inspiration, celebration and positive action to help stop seismic testing," said Save Our Coast founder Ms Natasha Deen.

The Senate Inquiry into Seismic Testing will visit Terrigal on Tuesday, March 17.

While seismic testing has been abandoned in waters off the Peninsula's coastline, Ms Deen said that the Inquiry's Central Coast visit was still vitally important, with the meeting in Umina to be a celebration of grassroots activism and the power of community.

"Many of the 8000 submissions to the Inquiry were from the Central Coast and at our wonderful Umina Hands Across the Sand event where 1500 people held hands for over one kilometre along Umina Beach to stand united against seismic testing.

"The Senate Inquiry on the Impact of Seismic Testing will be held at the Central Coast because people here have shown how much they care.

"A huge show of community spirit succeeded in stopping seismic testing off our coast for now, but we need to make it permanent," she said.
