    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!

  • Protect Sydney's Drinking Water Catchment

    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.

  • 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.

  • signed Stop Origin Fracking the NT 2019-05-14 11:23:39 +1000

    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.

    Pledge

    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.

    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?
