    Tell the federal government that we want a renewables-led recovery

    We know that we need renewables NOT gas for a sustainable, healthy future for our communities, our environment AND our economy. 

    We can't let our government keep propping up this destructive industry. It’s time we invested our money wisely on safe and sustainable industries, and towards a clean energy future.

    Tell the federal government that we want a renewables-led recovery!

    Protect Our Food and Water

    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.

    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.)

    Help stop coal mining under Sydney's drinking water catchments!

    Protect Sydney's Drinking Water Catchment

    Our drinking water, our rivers and even our World Heritage areas are threatened by longwall coal mining in the greater Sydney region.

    Right now, South32, Wollongong Coal and Hume Coal are all pushing ahead with proposals for new coal mining inside Greater Sydney’s water catchment.

    On top of that, Peabody Coal have applied to explore for more coal near Woronora Reservoir.

    It’s time that Premier Berejiklian declared Sydney's drinking water catchment a no-go zone for coal mining.

    Can you chip in?

    GET THIS AD UP ON SKY NEWS!

    The Federal Government wants to strip away the rights of communities to object to dangerous mining projects by ripping up our basic legal rights and putting national assets like the Liverpool Plains and Great Barrier Reef at risk.

    But Alan Jones has put the Government on notice, and joined us to demand they take this divisive plan off the table.  Can you chip in get this TV Ad played on Sky News next week and send the Federal Parliament a message they can't ignore?

    With your help we can make sure each and every Federal politician hears the powerful voice of Alan Jones blaring through their parliamentary offices this coming week, as they return for the first time after the Parliamentary break.

    By chipping in now, you will be asking them directly to stand up for communities and defend Australia from reckless coal and gas mining giants who are putting our nation at risk.  All we're asking for is a fair go, and the basic right to be heard in a court of law.

    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?
