Abbott-proof the Northern Rivers from CSG NOW!


If an Abbott Government is elected in September, we'll see open slather mining across much of Australia. This is a risk we cannot take.

Labor, Greens and Independent members of Parliament currently have the numbers to ban CSG mining now.

Let's urge the Labor member for Richmond, Justine Elliot to move a private members bill to Abbott-proof the Northern Rivers from CSG miningbefore it's too late.

Please sign my petition to 'Abbott proof' the Northern Rivers from CSG mining NOW!

Dawn Walker

Federal Greens candidate for Richmond

P.S. Don't forget to share this around with your friends.                               

Time is running out - we can't risk CSG on an Abbott Government!


How the Federal Government can stop CSG mining

As Lock the Gate’s recent ‘Call to Country’ revealed, the Federal Government can act to stop CSG mining. 

Specifically, the Commonwealth could use it’s export and trading powers to create CSG no-go zones over urban areas, cultural heritage sites, drinking water catchments and National Parks, as has been used in the past to stop State government’s wood chipping native forests.

Labor, The Greens and Independents have the numbers to pass such legislation in both houses of Parliament, so let's get on with it!

    Comments: Coal and unconventional gas mining poisons the land, our water and air. Fossil fuels must be replaced NOW with sustainable power. Exclusion zones is not enough. Totalling stopping all CSG mining Australia wide is the only way we will have a future. Do you have children? Do you love them and want them to prosper? Then... STOP FOSSIL FUEL USE NOW!

    Comments: Dear Justine, This is a heartfelt plea for you to "Abbott-proof" the Northern Rivers (at the very least) against CSG mining (Ian Macfarlane has already moved to accelerate this disastrous industry in NSW), by moving a private members bill to introduce a moratorium so that the claims of people like Peter Reith that "there is nothing wrong with fracking" can be challenged and proven to be the money-driven spin that they are..
