Stop Fracking the NT - Artwork Petition

The Federal Labor Government promised before the last election to protect our water in the Territory from fracking, by applying the ‘water trigger’ in national environment laws to shale gas fracking.  The trigger would require expert review and a decision under national laws.

But so far, the Federal Government has not made good on their promise.  They’re standing by and refusing to apply the water trigger, while Texan fracking companies push to start fracking as soon as possible.  

Add your voice to call for Federal Labor and our local MP, Marion Scrymgour, to apply the water trigger like they promised!

(Your name will be added to a beautiful artwork by Kulumindini artist, Sharon Bill, and delivered to our NT Federal representatives Marion Scrymgour MP and Senator Malarndirri McCarthy.)

Dear Minister Plibersek,

Thank you for expanding the ‘water trigger’ within the Environment Protection & Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Act so that it also covers shale and tight gas fracking.

With massive new fracking projects currently being considered in the Northern Territory, there is an urgent need for you to now implement the water trigger and formally assess these projects for their impact on water resources under the EPBC act.

Specifically, we’re asking you to call in Tamboran’s Shenandoah and Amungee fracking proposals, so that the severe risk they pose to NT water resources is properly assessed by independent experts before any gas production is permitted to occur.

Signed sincerely,
