Stop Fracking the NT - Artwork Petition

Right now the Federal Government is considering approval of the largest fracking projects ever proposed in the NT. These projects pose a huge threat to precious groundwater, the local environment, and Aboriginal culture.

The Federal Government has the power to stop these projects based on their impacts on water and the environment. Add your voice to the call to protect our water from fracking!

(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,
