Sam Wainwright will be speaking alongside respected Hunter Valley coal miner Graham Brown at a public meeting and cultural night on August 15.
Graham Brown is a recently retired coal miner and current unionist and climate activist. He has a long record of arguing for feasible ways to phase out coal in order to combat climate change, without jeopardising the interests of coal miners and mining communities.
Sam will be addressing the topic "People power can save the planet". He will be arguing that it is still possible to win a safe climate future but only with a massive people's movement for change.
The event will include a meal and entertainment. More information about this event (which is part of the Socialist Alliance state conference) can be found here.
