We know that we need renewables NOT gas for a sustainable, healthy future for our communities, our environment AND our economy.
We can't let our government keep propping up this destructive industry. It’s time we invested our money wisely on safe and sustainable industries, and towards a clean energy future.
Tell the federal government that we want a renewables-led recovery!5,967 signaturesAdd signature
PETITION to the Deputy Premier, Independent Planning Commission and Planning Minister Rob Stokes:
We oppose Santos’ Narrabri Gas Project across the Pilliga forest and farmland near Narrabri due to:
- The risk and damage it would bring to the groundwater of the Great Artesian Basin
- The hundreds of thousands of tonnes of salty waste it would produce, with no disposal solution
- The spread of gasfields across the North West region’s farmland that would follow
The fact it would do zero to address high gas prices, in fact it could lock in higher prices.
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.6,313 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.
Sign the pledge here and help stop Origin.

We, the undersigned, make this promise: we will not allow the Warkworth mine to destroy Saddle Ridge and the Warkworth Sands, nor the village of Bulga.
Saddle Ridge and the Warkworth Sands harbour woodlands and wildlife that are vanishing from the Hunter Valley due to open cut coal mining. The area is an ancient pathway and place of harmony, protection, and direction for Wonnarua people. It shields the village of Bulga from noise and dust rising from the super pits of Rio Tinto's Mount Thorley-Warkworth mine. For the Wonnarua, the people of Bulga, and the wildlife, Saddle Ridge and the Warkworth Sands are home; protecting and guiding them. Such things cannot be compensated for. They cannot be sold, or replaced.
The NSW government may have signed the death warrant for Warkworth Sands and the village of Bulga, but the people have not. The government and Rio Tinto are colluding against us, but we are united and we will not be subdued.
The highest courts in New South Wales have rejected the Warkworth mine expansion for the same reasons we reject it. By siding with Rio Tinto to subvert the people’s victory in court, the government has crossed a line. Now we are the ones that will uphold fairness, protect the ridge and restore faith in organised community.
We stand with the village of Bulga and Wonnarua traditional owners. We pledge to them that we will use all peaceful means to help them protect community and culture from the Warkworth coal mine.
The Declaration is endorsed by:
- Bulga Milbrodale Progress Association
- Kevin Taggart, Wonnarua traditional owner.
- Hunter Valley Protection Alliance
- Hunter Valley Wine Industry Tourism Association
- Broke Fordwich Wine & Tourism Association
- Lock The Gate Alliance
