Support Farmers Fighting for the Right to Say No to Gas

After a decade of coal seam gas production in the region, farmers on Queensland's Darling Downs are seeing huge impacts from coal seam gas. They are losing water, dealing with the stress of negotiations with multinational companies, and witnessing sections of their properties sink with subsidence as gas and water is extracted from beneath them.

We need real protection for our fertile farming regions and to give farmers a right to say no to gas on their land. Will you stand with Queensland farmers?

Will you send a message of support to the affected landholders letting them know you and hundreds of other Queenslanders support their call to protect prime farmland?

This is a chance to push for real reforms - if we stand together. Leave your message below and we will share them with the incredibly tough farmers who have been fighting this injustice for years.

    Coal seam gas is a fossil fuel. Stop killing the country!

    Our primary producers need to be listened to. We have all seen the pollution and destruction of precious land and water resources, destroyed by greedy, uncaring mining companies. Politicians need to think of the future and ban fossil fuel mining on our agricultural lands before it is too late.

    I was shocked to read that there are 18000 gas wells already installed in QLD. So sorry the farmers are suffering at the hands of these immoral and irresponsible gas companies. That they still have so much power everywhere in Australia is reprehensible. How the are the children of the future going to cope with the desecration and the deadly effects of pollution caused by these wells.

    Just stop it.. funny how the environmental solutions are slammed (windfarms and solar panels), yet these just seem ro go without any notice, with far higher consequemces.

    Food and water tesource security comes before gas industry. Enough landholders have contributed to the energy industry. Why not look at supporting farmers instead? Enough of enough.

    I’m from the Upper Hunter. I’ve seen so many farms dug up and turned into coal mines over the years. :(
