IT’S A PARK, NOT A PADDOCK!
Join us on Thursday, August 22 when the NSW Parliament debates the impacts of feral horses on Kosciuszko National Park.
More than 12,000 people signed the petition calling for this debate and it’s now going to happen!
The Parliament will debate repealing the Kosciuszko Wild Horse Heritage Act and repairing the damage caused by hard-hooved animals.
Some of the events have limited seats so please make sure to RSVP for each event you would like to attend.
Date: 22 August, 2019
Time: 1.20pm – 5.00pm
Location: Parliament of New South Wales, 6 Macquarie Street, Sydney, NSW 2000
The day’s activities include:
1.20pm – Presentations and talks
Join us in the Macquarie Room at the NSW Parliament House and hear scientists, politicians, Aboriginal elders and environmentalists discuss the Save Kosci petition and the feral horse issue.
Tea and coffee will be provided but please RSVP, there is limited space.
3.15pm – Demonstration
We will be assembling at the Archibald Fountain, a short walk from Parliament House, where we will rally for the protection of Kosciuszko National Park’s native plants and animals from feral horse destruction.
You will be grouped by occupation or interests e.g. scientists, motorists, horse riders, families, cross-country skiers, members of a club or association. Where possible, we hope each group’s members will wear something representing their interest e.g. lab coats or ski gear. We welcome suggestions from groups that would like to participate. Please bring an outfit that best suits your interest or occupation outfit, or we can lend you a Save Kosci vest on arrival. No RSVP required – just show up!
4.00pm – Petition debate
The debate will start at 4.30pm. We have booked out 100 of the allocated 120 seats for Reclaim Kosci supporters so we recommend RSVPing.
*Please note we have been told specifically that we will not be able to view the debate if we are dressed in ‘protest’ outfits or seen protesting outside of parliament, so if you have a Save Kosci vest or outfit on please make sure to get changed before entering the Parliament.
