The Channel Country is a vast network of rivers and floodplains in Queensland's south west that is at threat from expanding fracking gas infrastructure.
In 2015 the Palasczuk government promised to protect the rivers of the Lake Eyre Basin from fracking. At the end of 2022, after a drawn out consultation process, it was time for the government to act. But the gas companies are pushing back hard. Now these protections are hanging by a thread and we’re in danger of losing them altogether.
Help us put pressure on your local ALP representative by delivering our petition to them, and tell them to release the RIS for proper public consultation!
