KANDANGA NO DAM INFO CENTRE

The No Dam Info Centre is the epicentre of the campaign. It is situated beside the old railway station in Kandanga, a historic Mary Valley township that would be largely flooded by the proposed dam. The Info Centre educates the public, hosts meetings and workshops, and doubles as a crisis centre for those affected by the dam proposal. It operates 7 days a week from 10am - 4pm, and is staffed entirely by fabulous and dedicated volunteers.

You can help keep the Info Centre functioning in top gear by giving something from the list below...

   

A REAM OF PAPER (recycled, of course!)

It might not sound like a big deal, but a single ream of paper can be turned into 500 information sheets... and goes a long way towards educating and informing on the flaws of the dam proposal.
