Help us stop fracking in the NT Beetaloo Basin


The Coalition, supported by Labor, has passed legislation in Parliament to provide at least $50m subsidised funding for new fossil fuel projects, including fracking in the Northern Territory. The government’s five basins gas plan would lead to expanding emissions, the equivalent of more than 80 average-sized Australian coal-fired plants! On October 19th a second Disallowance Motion will be put to the Senate by the Greens to try to halt government funding to gas companies to support unconventional gas exploration in the environmentally sensitive Beetaloo Basin. DCAN is urging Labor MPs to support the Greens' disallowance motion in the Senate. Here is some background information to help you write your letter or make an urgent phone call to Federal Labor MPs. Remember we have till just the 19th October to make our feelings known to Labor MPs. Click here for more background info and resources
