    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.

  • Petition to save the heritage Wallaby Scrub Road in the Hunter Valley from Open Cut Mining

    330 signatures

    We the undersigned demand the Premier of NSW Mike Baird and his Roads Minister Duncan Gay refuse to close Bulga's Wallaby Scrub Road to allow Warkworth Mining Limited (Rio Tinto) to destroy our convict built heritage road for open cut coal mining.

    The owner of the road, Singleton Council, has reaffirmed its objection to the closure of Wallaby Scrub Road by voting against the closure at their recent meeting. Council is supporting the Bulga community, and we call on the Baird Government to do the same.

    Baird's State Government has ignored the Land and Environment Court and the Supreme Court and abandoned the people of Bulga and Milbrodale in the Hunter Valley. The Commonwealth Government has worked hand in glove with the NSW Government to allow the destruction of world unique woodlands and aboriginal culture and history.

    Wallaby Scrub Road is a heritage road built by the convicts and must be preserved as part of our European heritage. We must not allow a profit driven international mining company to destroy our heritage against wishes of the community and to mine a product which is destroying our planet.

    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?

    #Time2Choose: Visit Your Local MP

    Time-To-Choose.jpg

    In NSW right now, we're at a crucial cross-roads.  It's a stark choice - will we choose more damaging coal and gas mining, or will we choose clean food, clean air and clean energy?

    We need members of parliament to know that we're demanding better choices for NSW.

    Are you willing to meet your MP?

    Let us know where you are, and give us your phone number, and we’ll give you a call to talk through the details.

    Here’s the simple choice we’re asking them to make for New South Wales. Will they support our vision to:

    1. Promote health and prosperity through agriculture and reliable clean energy
    2. Protect communities, including Indigenous communities, and give them legal rights to object to mining
    3. Protect important farmland, catchments and water resources from risky coal mining
    4. Stop mining and exploration for unconventional gas (like CSG)

    Will your local member make this choice for NSW’s future?
