Stop Fracking the NT Petition

Fracking threatens our water, land and climate. Sign up today to help stop fracking in the NT!

To Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek, Climate Change Minister Chris Bowen and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Catherine King.

I’m calling on the Federal Government to use its powers to protect the Territory and rule out any public funding for fracking or associated infrastructure

Please take action to protect water, culture and climate and stop 6,000 frack wells being drilled across the Beetaloo.
