    Tell the federal government that we want a renewables-led recovery

    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!

    Help Stop Santos’ Coal Seam Gas Project in Narrabri

    1,039 signatures

    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.

    Stop Origin Fracking the NT

    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.

    I will stand up and be a part of the massive people-powered movement to stop Origin Energy’s plans to frack the Territory.

  • signed Mine Rehab Petition 2019-03-19 13:52:39 +1100

    Make Coal Giants Pay for Mine Clean-Up

    Our new report – Abandoned Mines in Queensland: Toxic Time-bomb or Employment Opportunity? – calls for big mining companies to cover the cost of rehabilitating the State’s abandoned mines and estimates that this would generate 6000 jobs in regional Queensland!

    There are too many large abandoned mines, and the full cost of cleaning them up is too large and should not fall on taxpayers. If mines are levied to pay for the clean up, they can also create jobs in the process.

    Why should we miss out on hundreds of schools and hospitals because we’re footing the bill for the mess left behind by irresponsible mining companies?

    We call on the NSW and Queensland Premiers to strengthen weak mining laws and force companies to honour their obligations to rehabilitate their mines. The following needs to be done:

    1. Increase the required deposit to cover rehabilitation costs
    2. Require all future mines to backfill their mining pits and protect water resources
    3. Establish an independent authority to monitor and enforce mine rehabilitation
    4. Penalise companies who breach rehabilitation requirements.


    Together we can ensure that the mining industry is held to account and that our land and water resources are protected against abandoned mines.

    Our common home

    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?
