• Don't Frack the Outback - Let's Stop Fracking In Australia
    Much is being done to try to influence Australia’s leaders to transition out of coal. A lesser known source of greenhouse emissions is our gas industry. Government figures show that emissions from coal and gas are increasing. They explain the methane increase as being due to rising LNG exports. Yet they want to export even more. As one of the world’s largest gas exporters, we are on track to becoming one of the top contributors to global warming by 2030. Doctors for the Environment Australia believe that our gas industry has impacts for climate and health and is a threat to our food security. The Permanent People’s Tribunal has said that fracking is against human rights and should be banned worldwide. The latest Water Report for the Surat Basin says that in Qld alone 547 water bores will become unusable as the gas fields expand. How much water from WA, SA and the NT will be wasted too? Future generations need our Government to ban fracking now. Please add your signature and get as many others as possible to sign too.

  • Don't Frack the Outback - Injune Qld
    When people visit the Outback they expect to see wildlife, trees and wide open spaces. Not gas wells. This project allows multinational companies to drill and frack 940 wells on farms, in State Forests, right near Carnarvon National Park. Fracking even one well is too many. Drilling more wells when the climate is in crisis and Australia faces no shortage of gas if it was reserved from exports is not necessary, economically wise, or morally sound. This acts as a submission opposing Australia Pacific LNG application to vary Environmental Authority EPPG00787513.

  • Save Kintore Street Village
    Imagine waking up in the morning to crying, screaming, laughing or the patter of 40 little feet and they're not your own kids but someone elses! That's going to happen to us if the DA is passed on the Child Care Centre built next door in a residential area in Dulwich Hill. Not to mention the additional traffic chaos that will be created in a street that boasts a primary school of 650 students and commuters parking their cars all day when they use the light rail!

  • Ban the use of Glyphosate in Central Coast Waterways
    Glyphosate has been banned or restricted in over 20 countries due to the threat it poses to human health. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (2015), Glyphosate is 'probably carcinogenic' to humans, can cause DNA & chromosomal damage in humans & causes cancer in lab tested mammals. Furthermore, Glyphosate has been linked to bee deaths and may be a contributing factor in the significant bee decline we are witnessing around the world (Motta & Moran 2018). The Central Coast Council is planning to roll out an extensive waterway weed control program across the entire Coast, with about 100 waterways targeted for 'treatment' with Glyphosate 360 and Metsulfuron-methyl from April 2019 - March 2020. We are calling on the Central Coast Council to cease immediately any further actioning of the above-mentioned Waterway Weed Control Program & make the move now to protect our health & environment from the risks associated with Glyphosate. We must work together to find innovative solutions to land & water management that have both safety & sustainability in the foreground. A public Forum is hereby requested.

  • Legislate to curb Australia's accelerating rate of land clearing
    Australia remains a global deforestation hotspot, and areas across the country are increasingly affected by intense fires, record temperatures and drought. Land clearing is harming Australian industry and society, as well as the flora and fauna that are directly affected. Over 300 scientists recently called on governments at all levels to take action to curb land clearing and native habitat destruction in Australia. Concerned Australians can amplify the scientists' message by supporting this campaign. The original open letter can be read here: https://www.ecolsoc.org.au/scientists-declaration-strong-legislation-needed-curb-australias-accelerating-rate-land-clearing This interview with Euan Ritchie sets out the issues clearly: http://thewire.org.au/story/experts-call-for-dramatic-decrease-in-land-clearing/ And this article in The Conversation sets out the reasons why urgent action is required at all levels of government: https://theconversation.com/to-reduce-fire-risk-and-meet-climate-targets-over-300-scientists-call-for-stronger-land-clearing-laws-113172 (NB Image courtesy of Goongerah Environment Centre (GECO).)

  • Just when we thought our food was safe in SA
    When it comes to food safety concerns about GM crops we the people need to be consulted or at least all sides to the argument for yes or no need to be considered. It appears the Marshall Government are not interested in consultation, we need to let them know we, the consumers have a major stake in this issue. They are listening to those who have an agenda promoting the case for GM crops, it's our turn to deliver our message. No, don't GMO food in our state. Americans in their droves are now requesting organic food because they don't want GM sourced food, and their whole food system is now compromised. The negative past experiences of other countries who allowed GM crops is freely available for everyone to see. Russia and some EU countries have since banned GM because the risks to human health are too great. Separating GM crops from Non GM crops has proven a nonsensical idea and the hundreds of court cases re contamination confirm this. So what if SA misses out on research on GMO, we want to stay clean.

  • Save historic Frontier Wars site Ravensworth Estate from becoming a coal mine
    A historical Frontier War site of Aboriginal resistance is set to be completely destroyed to make way for an open cut coal mine. Ravensworth Estate in the Upper Hunter a site of Aboriginal resistance and the massacre of Aboriginal people is in the way of an open cut coal mine expansion, so mining company Glencore propose to simply destroy it. The landscape surrounding Ravensworth is a recognised place of cultural significance for Aboriginal people. Mining companies have a long and sordid history of ignoring Aboriginal cultural and land rights, to allow them to destroy a Frontier Wars is unthinkable. Help us preserve this historical site and be part of the growing movement to recognise the reality of colonisation and commemorate resistance by Aboriginal people.
