    They're trying to overturn the Bylong mine refusal

    The NSW mining industry is trying to overturn the Bylong mine refusal and bring down the Independent Planning Commission.

    Check out our new TV ad, with local farmers demanding the Premier protects Bylong for good.

    Can you chip in to keep this running on TV, and show the mining giants that they don't own NSW?

    Stop the Narrabri gas project

    The NSW Government has said they intend to push for a final decision on the dangerous Narrabri CSG project in north-west NSW early next year. 

    If approved, it could open the floodgates and unleash gasfields across southern Australia, undoing all the success of our amazing movement over the last 10 years.

    Can you help us stop this project, get the expert advice that is needed and push to get permanent protection for this recharge zone of the Great Artesian Basin?

    Stop Origin Fracking the NT

    Origin Energy are lining up to frack the Northern Territory this year, and in the firing line are some magical places, including recharge zones of Mataranka Hot Springs.

    Traditional Owners have told us that Origin Energy has ignored their concerns about fracking and not properly laid out the risks involved.

    Fracking the NT would be a disaster for the landscape, communities and waterways. Plus it would unleash massive emissions of methane, a greenhouse gas, and fuel global warming.

    We need to build a powerful movement of people willing to spread the word and take on Origin at every level, from their head offices to their board rooms.

    Make Coal Giants Pay for Mine Clean-Up

    Our new report – Abandoned Mines in Queensland: Toxic Time-bomb or Employment Opportunity? – calls for big mining companies to cover the cost of rehabilitating the State’s abandoned mines and estimates that this would generate 6000 jobs in regional Queensland!

    There are too many large abandoned mines, and the full cost of cleaning them up is too large and should not fall on taxpayers. If mines are levied to pay for the clean up, they can also create jobs in the process.

    Why should we miss out on hundreds of schools and hospitals because we’re footing the bill for the mess left behind by irresponsible mining companies?

    We call on the NSW and Queensland Premiers to strengthen weak mining laws and force companies to honour their obligations to rehabilitate their mines. The following needs to be done:

    1. Increase the required deposit to cover rehabilitation costs
    2. Require all future mines to backfill their mining pits and protect water resources
    3. Establish an independent authority to monitor and enforce mine rehabilitation
    4. Penalise companies who breach rehabilitation requirements.


    Together we can ensure that the mining industry is held to account and that our land and water resources are protected against abandoned mines.
