Thank you for joining us to stop more Hunter Valley farmland getting bought up for coal mining. I watched the video and I agree with her, one business should not supercede and be the ruin of many businesses and also a whole lot of people who depend upon the water for their home use as well.

It seems like this same disrespect for water is going on all over this world.
