From Sydney’s water supply catchment to the rich agricultural lands of the Liverpool Plains and the Darling Downs, the coal seam gas industry is expanding at breakneck speed. People's health is under threat, our nation's farmland being eroded away and the country's precious aquifers permanently damaged.
Locals are doing everything they can to spread the word about the dangers of coal seam gas (CSG) mining. Debbi, a GetUp member from Tara QLD, even drove 5 hours down to NSW to tell a community meeting what coal seam gas is doing to her kids' health.
But the mining industry just launched an advertising blitz -- now the community campaign has to step up in response. Let's stand with them.
Can you show your support by calling on the Health, Environment, Water and Agriculture Ministers to stop the coal seam gas industry until proper regulations are put in place?
