For the Love of Queensland

It’s all on the line in Queensland – our food and water, our health, our thriving agricultural industries.

The mining billionaires have been drowning out the voices of ordinary Queenslanders for too long.

Our icons are at risk from big coal and gas – the Great Artesian Basin, the Darling Downs, the Fraser Coast and Outback Rivers - even the Great Barrier Reef.

We’re asking for action to:

  1. Protect our food and water
  2. Stop risking people’s health
  3. Make the miners clean up their mess
  4. Ensure a sustainable economy

Mining and gas companies are paying little or no tax, dodging royalties and driving up our power prices. The future for our state is vibrant regional economies based on agriculture, tourism and solar power.

If you love Queensland, don’t let the mining giants wreck it for the rest of us.

    Delivering Acland letters to Premier Palaszczuk

    When: Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at 10:00 AM
    Where: Annastacia Palaszczuk's Electorate Office in Richlands, Australia

    Despite the Queensland Land Court recommending rejection of the Acland coal mine our government is still yet to uphold that recommendation. Allowing it to go ahead would mean the further destruction of some of QLD’s most important farmland.

    The farmers of the Darling Downs need certainty and QLD’s water and farmland needs to be protected.     

    Over the past few months we have been out talking to people around Brisbane about Acland and collecting signed letters and postcards. We are going to deliver all of these to Lynham and Palaszczuk’s electorate offices.

    We will be demonstrating the support for rejecting the Acland mine expansion so we need lots of people there. Can you join us?

    "Everyone that relies on the Great Artesian Basin is extremely concerned about the impacts these coal mines are going to have on their water supplies. Already we've seen impacts of cross contamination from exploration drilling that the mining companies have done".

     "It’s happening in a lot of mining towns where communities are being ripped apart. You can’t live there anymore because the rental costs go up and you start to lose all your volunteers. Those people, like the grandma that does the tuck shop, can’t afford to live there anymore and they move and then the actual fabric of the community is fractured".
