At the last two elections, the Queensland Government promised to protect the mighty floodplains of the Channel Country in the Lake Eyre Basin.
But they haven’t delivered, and now we’ve discovered they’ve secretively granted special 15-year permits for gas exploration - across more than 348,000 hectares of floodplains.
Tell the Premier not to frack with our rivers and floodplains.1,099 signatures
I support our outback farmers and communities and ask that you do the same.
Please support the clean green beef industry and thriving tourism sector in the Channel Country.
And protect the rivers and floodplains from fracking, and associated roads and pipelines, for good.

You can’t eat coal, I hope the judges overseeing this trial will have the insight to see how desperate this situation is and do the right thing.
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.6,181 signatures
I will stand up and be a part of the massive people-powered movement to stop Origin Energy’s plans to frack the Territory.

This week coal mining giant Whitehaven spent $700,000 buying up some of the only water available for drought stricken farmers.
They paid triple the price that local farmers could afford to pay.
Chip in today to expose the outrageous double standard which sees our few remaining water resources going to wash dirty coal.
Let’s build on the momentum that we’ve grown right across Australia in 2018, and stop this terrible misuse of our water for coal and gas mining.Donate
