    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.)

    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!

    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.

    On the driest inhabited continent on earth, where people and landscapes depend on vulnerable water resources, Australia needs laws that protect our water from coal and unconventional gas mining.

    In the lead-up to the Federal election, will you join us in putting water on the national agenda? Will you be part of our #Water4Life campaign?

    We will be taking action all around the country to tell candidates and political parties, that it’s time for them to:

    • Protect nationally significant water resources
    • Support the ‘dining boom’
    • Protect the health of people and communities

    We’ll be asking them to commit to our full #Water4Life Index, and we’ll be judging them against it.
