Singing and dancing Queensland Sadies, and piggies with their snouts in money troughs heralded Lock the Gate’s candidates’ survey on mining, corruption and Queensland’s unfair political system, released today.
Lock the Gate Alliance’s president, Drew Hutton officially released the survey on issues relating to inappropriate coal and gas mining, corruption and the lack of a fair and unbiased political system in Queensland.
Mr Hutton said Lock the Gate would release the survey results before and on polling day to allow Queenslanders to make informed choices on how to vote.
The survey includes questions on the right to say ‘no’ to mining, the right to clean air, water and land and the right to clean politics.
“All is not well in Queensland,” Mr Hutton said. “Mining giants and multi-national corporations have so much power and influence, that families and communities are no longer getting a fair go.
“Our food, water, health are all at risk from unsafe and inappropriate coal and gas mining and the election is our chance to tell politicians that these issues are extremely important to us.”
