ESCARPMENT & COAST ANNOUNCEMENT

Tomorrow, Cunningham MP Michael Organ will join NSW Greens MLC Ian Cohen to make an announcement about the Illawarra’s iconic Escarpment and coastline.

“The Escarpment is a place of significant cultural and environmental beauty that dominates the Illawarra. As such, the Greens will place its protection high on the agenda of the federal election campaign for the region and for the nation,” Michael Organ said.

“Our coastline is the Illawarra’s playground and retreat that deserves a coordinated Government response, so that future generations can also have the opportunity to enjoy it. The Greens will continue to work at local, state and federal levels to make that happen,” Michael Organ said.

“I am very grateful that Ian Cohen has lent his energy and credibility to my announcement,” Michael Organ said.

“The urgent protection of the Escarpment and coast is the Illawarra’s touchstone environmental issue. Only the Greens can be trusted to do the right thing,” Michael Organ said.
