Sydney Stop the Power Sell-off Rally
Saturday 5 February 11am
Top of Martin Place near Macquarie St
Join the loud chorus of protest against the NSW government's sale of electricity retailers and trading rights for generators that will have severe impacts on household bills, the energy workforce and the environment. The $5.3bn sale is a disastrous deal for the people of NSW. The Upper House inquiry has lifted the lid on some of the details of the transaction despite the best efforts of the Premier to shut down the inquiry and scare off potential witnesses. Join the call for the sale to be reversed.
Speakers confirmed to date include: Charmaine Crowe, Combined Pensioners and Superannuants Association (MC), David Shoebridge Greens NSW MP, Pepe Clarke, Nature Conservation Council, Sally McManus, Australian Services Union and John Kaye Greens NSW MP.
