Take Action

Lock The Gate Alliance is a national coalition of people from across Australia, including farmers, traditional custodians, conservationists and urban residents, who are uniting to protect our common heritage - our land, water and communities - from unsafe or inappropriate mining for coal seam gas and other fossil fuels. Read more about the missions and principles of Lock the Gate.

Our best food-producing lands and our finest natural areas are at risk from unsafe coal mining, coal seam gas and other forms of unconventional gas extraction. 54% of Australia is covered by coal and gas licences or applications. Nowhere is sacred and nothing is safe. Learn more..

Coal mines and gasfields are harming peoples health, destroying their quality of life and dividing communities. Learn more..
Our Future
Unsafe mining is threatening drinking water catchments, underground water supplies and creeks and rivers. Learn more..

Protecting our Heritage. Embracing the future is the second national gathering of the community movement beyond coal and gas.  Bringing together people from one end of Australia to the other, it will be a rare and important opportunity for communities to share experiences and to learn from one another.

Lock the Gate is a partner of this event. For more information see the official website here: http://beyondcoalandgas.org/

Lock the Gate has dismissed claims by the Minerals Council, that 8,600 mining jobs are at risk in the Hunter, as wildly exaggerated.
