ACLAND FIGHTING FUND
Please chip in to make sure the legal win against the Acland Stage 3 coal mine on the Darling Downs isn't overturned.
The Queensland Land Court recommended that this mine should be refused. The impacts on groundwater will be too severe and the noise and dust impacts on local landholders are too great. You can read a short summary of the Land Court decision here.
But New Hope Coal have appealed the Land Court decision, and they are funding a massive advertising blitz, to try to push the Queensland Government to over-rule the Land Court.
Local farmers and community desperately need support. Please chip in to the fighting fund to defend this unprecedented court win. It's a fight for the Great Artesian Basin and the right to protect groundwater statewide - and we can't afford to lose.
