Thank you for being a part of the fracking battle that is emerging in Australia’s unique and iconic Northern Territory.
Following from the success of the recent #ourlandisourlife rally outside NT Parliament, the pressure is rising, and a rural delegation has been invited inside Northern Territory Parliament to meet with every sitting member to discuss fracking.
Remote Indigenous community leaders, cattle station workers, food growers and regional tourism operators will make it clear that they will not allow our elected representatives to rush ahead with a fracking bonanza putting livelihoods, water and culture at risk.
While other parts of the world and across Australia are putting bans or moratoriums in place to protect communities and water supplies from fracking, the Northern Territory Government is doing the opposite.
Over 90% of the Territory is covered in oil and gas licences or applications.
Our voices are needed inside the halls of NT Parliament. Getting spokespeople to Darwin will cost thousands of dollars. Yet their voices and passion for the Territory could be the thing that opens the eyes of NT politicians, who are usually more likely to meet a gas fracker in Parliament than a farmer. They need to know that fracking poses unacceptable risks to other industries like pastoralism, fishing, tourism and rural economies.
All funds raised with your support will go towards transport costs for our delegation traveling from rural and remote areas, budget accommodation (where billeting is not possible), and food expenses whilst they are in Darwin for a few days to build support amongst politicians and other local organisations.
Thank you so much for your ongoing support! This is such an exciting time work together.
