    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.

    Can you chip in to hold the frackers at bay?

    $31,570.00 raised
    GOAL: $35,000.00

    In the Territory, the exploration fracking rigs are ready to roll within the next few weeks. 

    Communities across the Northern Territory are staunchly opposed to fracking.

    Will you stand with them to defend our water- including the recharge zones of the magnificent Mataranka Hot Springs?

    If you give $50 or more, your gift will be matched by one of our supporters!

    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.

    Stand with us against the coal bullies

    $34,658.00 raised
    GOAL: $35,000.00

    This is an edited excerpt from the ABC story. Click here for the full segment.

    The recent ABC 7.30 program highlighted the ongoing campaign to shut down the work of community groups like Lock the Gate.

    This is the latest attack in government and industry's long running campaign to reduce the effectiveness of groups working to protect our land, water and communities from destructive mining.

    They’re trying to strip our tax deductible status, silence our voices during elections and increase our red-tape.

    We’re determined to keep on doing our work supporting landholders and communities but we need your support to carry on.

    Please help us stand up to the bullies and continue our vital work!

    Your donation allows us to:

    1. Speak out in the media and confront the pro-coal and pro-gas agenda.

    2. Undertake research and let the public know when these mining companies illegally breach their own pollution licences, contaminate rivers and pollute the air.

    3. Assist farmers, community members and Traditional Owners on the front line of destructive coal and gas projects to stand up for their rights.

  • signed Mine Rehab Petition 2018-10-31 23:12:37 +1100

    Make Coal Giants Pay for Mine Clean-Up

    Our new report – Abandoned Mines in Queensland: Toxic Time-bomb or Employment Opportunity? – calls for big mining companies to cover the cost of rehabilitating the State’s abandoned mines and estimates that this would generate 6000 jobs in regional Queensland!

    There are too many large abandoned mines, and the full cost of cleaning them up is too large and should not fall on taxpayers. If mines are levied to pay for the clean up, they can also create jobs in the process.

    Why should we miss out on hundreds of schools and hospitals because we’re footing the bill for the mess left behind by irresponsible mining companies?

    We call on the NSW and Queensland Premiers to strengthen weak mining laws and force companies to honour their obligations to rehabilitate their mines. The following needs to be done:

    1. Increase the required deposit to cover rehabilitation costs
    2. Require all future mines to backfill their mining pits and protect water resources
    3. Establish an independent authority to monitor and enforce mine rehabilitation
    4. Penalise companies who breach rehabilitation requirements.


    Together we can ensure that the mining industry is held to account and that our land and water resources are protected against abandoned mines.

    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?
