    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.

  • signed Mine Rehab Petition 2018-08-28 12:20:39 +1000

    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.

    #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?
