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.
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.6,239 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.

Can you make a contribution to save the magnificent natural icons of the Northern Territory that are under threat from fracking?
World-renowned tourist destinations like the recharge zone of the Mataranka Hot Springs are at risk from fracking right now.
The NT Government has lifted the moratorium on fracking, and now the gas industry plans to push ahead fast with exploratory fracking.
Your donation will go directly to help save amazing places from being covered with oil and gas wells.
Funds raised will be used to inform Northern Territory communities about the impacts of fracking and to support local community groups working to protect our national treasures.

Hunter Valley farmer Wendy Bowman has been awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize for her extraordinary success in protecting her farm from being open cut for coal mining.
Will you help us amplify Wendy's win and shine a spotlight on the damage coal mining is doing to the Hunter Valley?
Wendy was forced to leave her land once due to a coal mine, but when they tried a second time on her next farm she stood her ground.
She has beaten a coal mining company in court, and now we need to change the law so no more Australian farmers are forced to move for coal mining.
Write a message to Australian politicians telling them to stop letting coal companies buy-up huge areas of farmland. In the Singleton Shire where Wendy farms, coal companies own 15% of all freehold land and 27% of all mapped strategic agricultural land.
When the government grants approval for a mine, they let them pollute the landscape with noise and air far beyond their own boundaries, forcing local people to sell up and leave. Wendy Bowman has stood her ground - support her courage today and help other Hunter farmers under threat.206 signatures
To: Barnaby Joyce, Niall Blair, Anthony Roberts, Australian and New South Wales Agrilculture and Planning Ministers,
I support Hunter Valley farmer Wendy Bowman in her fight to stop coal mines buying up and mining the best farmland in the Hunter Valley.
