Join communities around Australia who are working to protect our land, water and air from risky coal and gas development.
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.1,339 signaturesAdd signature
Trish Waddington signed Petition to save the heritage Wallaby Scrub Road in the Hunter Valley from Open Cut Mining via Dr Nerida Riley 2016-07-25 18:10:12 +1000329 signatures
We the undersigned demand the Premier of NSW Mike Baird and his Roads Minister Duncan Gay refuse to close Bulga's Wallaby Scrub Road to allow Warkworth Mining Limited (Rio Tinto) to destroy our convict built heritage road for open cut coal mining.
The owner of the road, Singleton Council, has reaffirmed its objection to the closure of Wallaby Scrub Road by voting against the closure at their recent meeting. Council is supporting the Bulga community, and we call on the Baird Government to do the same.
Baird's State Government has ignored the Land and Environment Court and the Supreme Court and abandoned the people of Bulga and Milbrodale in the Hunter Valley. The Commonwealth Government has worked hand in glove with the NSW Government to allow the destruction of world unique woodlands and aboriginal culture and history.
Wallaby Scrub Road is a heritage road built by the convicts and must be preserved as part of our European heritage. We must not allow a profit driven international mining company to destroy our heritage against wishes of the community and to mine a product which is destroying our planet.
