Pilliga Push Camp – Declaration of Peaceful Direct Action
The Pilliga Push Camp is committed to protecting the waters of the Great Artesian Basin (GAB) and Murray Darling Basin by educating, uniting and mobilising communities. We shall sustain a Peaceful Direct Action (PDA) campaign to stop the development of Santos’s Narrabri Gas Project and the resulting destruction of the Pilliga (Billarrga) forest and its biodiversity, Gamilaraay sacred sites and cultural identity, as well as surrounding farmlands and the rural economy.
In short, this campaign is about saving Australia’s future water security, food security and economic prosperity. ‘Water Is Life’, and once we destroy the water, there is no longer an economy, community or ecology.

a world where the interconnectedness of all life is honored and respected, where each take responsibility for learning,
healing, and leadership in pursuit of noble expression,
and where the capacity to love – and be loved –
is the highest note in our symphony of evolved expression
