I want to fight with you, to stand against these mining companies, to stop them in their tracks. To make governments personally accountable for the consequences of their decisions and actions but I don’t know what I as an individual can do? I live in Far Nth QLD, I sign every petition I can and write to my MP’s but it just isn’t enough. George, I am so sorry, it wasn’t enough.

Bishops, wine-makers, livestock producers and conservationists have penned a joint letter to NSW Premier Mike Baird calling on him to protect our common home from a coal mining industry that is out of control. You can read the full text of the joint letter here
Our common home, our farmland, rivers, villages and bushland are being torn up or ruined for coal mining. How long are coal affected communities expected to wait for the Government to do something to fix up coal mining?
We've put an ad in Mike Baird's local paper, the Manly Daily, and want all of you to give him a call and add your voice to the push to reform coal mining and save our communities, landscapes and rural industries. Can you call him?
