Your regular donation will defend clean water and healthy communities from risky coal and gas mining!
Regular contributions give Lock the Gate the ability to plan and work effectively to prevent environmental damage and stop dangerous pollution from coal and gas expansion.
Many regions of the country are now facing one of the worst droughts on record.
Due to climate change we face more variable rainfall and more frequent, severe fires. Our agricultural productivity is under increasing pressure.
But coal and gas mines are still targeting many of our best food growing areas and precious water supplies.1,424 signatures
Call on our state and federal politicians to protect our vital food growing land and water supplies.
(This petition will be delivered to MP’s around the country in the lead up to the next election. See full text below.)

At Lock the Gate, we depend on the help of our passionate and dedicated volunteers. Without the people who generously contribute their time, skills and energy to support our work we would not be able to achieve our mission to protect our common heritage - our land, water and communities - from unsafe or inappropriate mining for coal seam gas and other fossil fuels.
Lock the Gate volunteers enjoy the fulfilment that comes from making a vital difference to the communities they live in. It is also a great way to gain experience, develop new skills, meet new people and get involved in the movement.
