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.1,103 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.

Our drinking water, our rivers and even our World Heritage areas are threatened by longwall coal mining in the greater Sydney region.
Right now, South32, Wollongong Coal and Hume Coal are all pushing ahead with proposals for new coal mining inside Greater Sydney’s water catchment.
On top of that, Peabody Coal have applied to explore for more coal near Woronora Reservoir.
It’s time that Premier Berejiklian declared Sydney's drinking water catchment a no-go zone for coal mining.1,357 signaturesAdd signature

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?
