To our Parliamentarians –
I am taking a stand to protect my community and the future of our country from inappropriate mining.
I am asking you to join me.
It is clear that mining and unconventional gas companies are riding roughshod over our governments and local communities. Corruption and poor regulatory process is being exposed at every turn. These industries cannot be trusted.
Coal and gas licences or applications already cover more than half of Australia.
Right now people are suffering, and our farmland, bushland and water resources are being put at risk.
Enough is enough.
Our Call to Country provides a plan for national reform that delivers a moratorium on unconventional gas mining and a Royal Commission into corruption and maladministration associated with the mining industry.
We are calling on you to support us in putting healthy communities, a sustainable economy, and clean water first.41 signaturesAdd signature
Victoria Graham wants to volunteer 2016-03-30 17:30:35 +1100
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.
If you tick the 'other' box, please be sure to let us know in the comments section what you'd like to help out with! Please also tell us about any expertise and specific skills you have.
