LOCAL environmentalists will tomorrow protest in front of federal Member for Cowper Luke Hartsuyker's office in support the national Pollution Free Politics campaign.

The campaign calls on the Federal Government to ban politicians from accepting donations from fossil fuel companies as well as subsidising their activities.

Coffs Harbour Climate Action Group say the proposed ban has already been publicly supported by several members of parliament from various political parties.

A theatre performance as well as a short speech will feature at Thursday's protest, which will start at 11.30am.

Pollution Free Politics is one of many campaigns run by the 350.org Australia to help address environmental issues including climate change.
