1. EDO NSW Facing Renewed AttacksJust before Christmas – without warning – the Federal Government told EDO NSW and other EDOs across the country that it is breaking its four-year commitment to fund EDOs – effective immediately!
This unexpected loss of $150,000 this financial year and $400,000 per annum in the coming financial years is extremely disappointing. Taking away such major funding severely limits our ability to help you and your community to address your local environmental issues. We know, because you’ve told us before, that without our expertise and guidance, the environment and effectiveness of our environmental laws will be severely weakened and grassroots communities will struggle to take on government and industry on their own.
We’re determined to find a way to remain a strong voice for local communities and the environment. But we need to your support right now. Please give generously so EDO NSW can continue to help your community stand up for your local environment.
You can also send a strong message to help hold our Federal Government accountable for their decision by signing our petition. Visit our website today to make your voice heard.
As always, we thank you for your support.
