• Stop Land Clearing That Will Wipe Out Koalas
    Koala populations are already struggling in certain parts of Queensland such as Dalby. Habitat is critical to the survival of the koala and up to 80% of koalas who lose their habitat are likely to be wiped out. The proposed destruction of koala habitat is for new coal seam gas wells on Queensland's Western Downs. Coal seam gas mining is a threat to farmlands and water resources not to mention the public health risks which have not yet been properly assessed. Potential harm could include an increased risk of cancer. What else can we do?

  • Save Barrabup Forest....once it's gone, it's gone!
    Barrabup Block is less than 5km to Nannup and is the main gateway to our beautiful little tourist town. There should have been more community consultation from government agencies due to the proximity to town considering the negative impact it may cause. The majority of this forest has not been logged since pre-1920, which makes it very unique as it is the oldest and largest forest this close to town. Rare and endangered flora/fauna and cultural heritage are located within this block. We need to protect this natural asset as it is far more valuable to our community and our environment if left in its natural state. This forest should be something we protect and hold dearly so that future generations can not only enjoy it but celebrate its existence. Please help us save this magnificent forest.

  • Ban brown coal mining in Australia
    Brown coal creates more pollution than other fuels such as black coal, natural gas and much more than clean renewable energy, making Victorians among the most greenhouse polluting people per capita on the planet (Victoria EPA website). Australia's greenhouse gas emissions from brown coal can be reduced dramatically and in a much shorter time frame than through the implementation of renewable energy by ceasing the use of brown coal and instead using black coal from Queensland.

  • Climate levy for Paris Accord cowards
    Our children and grandchildren will have to survive the dire impact of climate change. Already the impact of Global Warming is effecting our: Health – air quality, extreme weather Food supply – farms, water, weather, energy Shelter & Jobs – pollution, energy, Industry – tourism, land produce, education The rest of the world will have to pay for the share of carbon pollution the US is refusing to accept responsibility for. The US is the world’s biggest economy and the world’s second biggest carbon polluter. This means our children and grandchildren, and our industry will be paying very dearly for the belligerent sort-sightedness and self-interest of the USA.

  • 'NO' to 11 room boarding house at 213 Bunnerong Rd Maroubra 2035
    1) DA for a 3 storey boarding house containing 11 boarding rooms - potential accomodation for 22 people. 2) PARKING: only 3 parking spots are included. This is not adequate for the number of proposed residents. Parking is already at capacity on Eastmore Place. 3) CONGESTION: additional cars entering and exiting Eastmore Place is a safety issue, and additional vehicle movements pose a risk. Eastmore Place is still technically a laneway, and access is very narrow and does not allow for two cars to enter and exit without difficulty. 4) SECURITY & COMMUNITY SAFETY: Eastmore Place is a family oriented suburban area, with 20+ young children residing on the immediate block. The proposed boarding house has the potential to erode the existing character of the zone through cumulative social effects.

  • Don't give billions to Adani
    Global mining company, Adani, have been unsuccessfully trying to secure finance for the Carmichael coal mine for years. Now, the Turnbull Government is considering making the Australian public foot the billion dollar bill for Adani's rail line, which will transport coal from the mine to the port. This is despite his promise during the 2016 federal election that there would be no public funding of Adani's mine. This billion dollar loan is risky, reckless, and deeply unpopular. Even members of the Prime Minister's own party oppose it, with Coalition backbenchers Bert Van Manen and Sarah Henderson speaking out. This is public money, that would be better spent anywhere else! Funding our local hospitals and schools would be a good start. Or how about investing in renewable energy projects instead?

  • Stop single-use takeaway containers in Newtown!
    Waste is a huge problem, both in Australia but also globally. In Australia, we throw away enough packaging waste to fill the Melbourne Cricket Ground nine times over. A large part of this waste comes from single use takeaway containers. While some are recyclable, many are not – and whether or not people actually do recycle those containers is whole other story. There’s been a huge uptake by cafes and individuals of reusable take-away coffee cups, which is fantastic. But single-use take-away containers are just as much an issue, and reusable containers are a comparable solution to Keep Cups. Packaging waste ends up in our oceans and rivers, harming our marine and wildlife. It's also a climate change issue, as it ends up in landfill emitting greenhouse gases which are cooking our climate. Reusable containers are a logical, simple solution to reducing waste to take care of our wildlife and our planet.
