On Friday 26 September 2014 thousands of people around Australia descended on the doorsteps of MPs and senators to protest the Federal Government’s attempt to hurt jobs and families by attacking the Renewable Energy Target. Renewable energy workers, businesses, solar owners and supporters turned out en masse with slogans and stories to tell of local communities standing firm behind the RET.
BCCAG members were among the group of over 100 people who were outside the office of Andrew Robb to loudly voice their concern over the future of the renewable energy industry and the threat to the RET. The previous day Andrew Robb had leapt to the defence of Victoria’s brown coal industry, labelling it a resource that is often demonised by people who oppose growth and development.
