    Stop the Gas Attack

    The Australian Government has announced plans to hand over millions of taxpayer dollars to the gas industry for big new fracking gas pipelines and gas infrastructure. This commitment follows relentless pressure from the National Covid Commission and their fossil fuel industry members.

    Our Federal decision makers need to hear from you on this. We can’t have them getting all their advice from the gas industry, and miss out on hearing your voice. 

    Will you call or email your MP right now?

    How do I contact my federal Member of Parliament? Just follow this Link to the Parliament of Australia website – enter your postcode to be taken to your lower house MP. You will find an email address and a phone number for your MP.

    Here are some ideas of what you can to say in your email/call:

    -I’m concerned the Federal Government is about to give handouts of taxpayer money to the gas industry.

    -The Australian public should NOT be paying for gas industry pipelines, infrastructure or buying gas directly from new fracking gasfields. The Queensland Hunter Gas Pipeline, the NT Beetaloo Fracking Pipeline and Bowen Basin pipeline would put farmers and Traditional Owners directly at risk. 

    -Gas is a bad investment. Our money shouldn’t prop up the gas industry. It puts farmers and regional communities in the firing line for new gasfields and fracking. 

    -We can create more jobs and opportunities if we support manufacturing and agribusiness to electrify and use plentiful renewable energy. We can switch away from gas.

    -The Government could help homes and small businesses install renewables, get energy efficient, and invest in storage. We don’t need more gas and fracking gasfields.

    Tips for calling:

    • Call the Electorate Office number - this should take you through to a staff member.
    • When you call, remember to be polite, friendly and calm. You will probably speak to a staffer, so just ask them to take down your message.
    • Introduce yourself and mention you live in your MP's electorate. 

    Please call and email the Treasurer Josh Frydenburg and let him know how you feel too

    Thanks for reminding our government to represent all of our interests, not just the gas industry.

    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!

  • Canterbury Bankstown Council - kick the gas habit / stop NT fracking

    As Canterbury Bankstown locals, we are asking Council to take action to protect our climate and help lower energy bills. 

    Our council can do this by opposing Origin’s plan to frack for oil and gas in the Northern Territory and by assisting local residents to access savings from switching appliances from gas to electricity.

    Canterbury Bankstown Council is a customer of Origin Energy. Origin Energy plans to drill and frack for oil and gas across the NT. New Australia Institute analysis has shown that Northern Territory fracking could be worse for greenhouse emissions than all Australian coal power stations combined. 

    Canterbury Bankstown Council “recognises the need to take urgent action to reduce emissions”.  Council passed a ‘Climate Emergency’ motion in August last year which called for the Premier to “step up” and “act with urgency to address the crisis”. Now it’s time for Canterbury Bankstown Council to step up. 

    In addition to opposing Origin Energy’s plans to frack the NT, Council needs to assist residents to disconnect from the gas network and access efficient, cheaper and safe technologies like induction cooktops and heat pumps for hot water and home heating and cooling (reverse cycle air conditioners).

    Canterbury Bankstown - by population - is the largest Council in NSW, with more than 361,000 residents. What our Council does makes a difference.

    Don’t Frack Queensland’s Outback Rivers

    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.

    Petition:


    Dear Premier,

    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.

    Stop the Narrabri Gas Project

    Help us combat Morrison’s dangerous push to bribe state governments to unleash fracking and CSG across the country.

    Our communities are calling for renewable energy with storage, not polluting gas.  Gas is not a transition fuel, it’s a one way street to more greenhouse emissions.

    Your donation helps local communities under threat to choose renewables not gas: 

    -$50 will let farmers and communities speak out in the media and get the facts to voters;

    -$75 will go towards supporting renewable energy projects in affected regions that have community support;

    -$100 will contribute to scientific & economic reports for media and submissions.

    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.
