Keep key environmental protection powers with the Commonwealth

      Castlemaine, Australia

Changes are afoot to dramatically wind back federal environmental protection laws. Under these changes, State Governments would be given sweeping powers to assess and approve major development projects. If implemented, these changes would be a disaster for our nation's environment and wildlife.

This petition is organised by Friends of the Earth Australia as part of our 'nature: not negotiable' campaign.

      Is there a valid reason the liberal party intends to carry out the previous howard's regime of putting economic growth before environmental protection and preserving australia's unique habitats. future generations will express dispaire at liberal's environmental policies. although one would argue there are none, just the same old sucking up to multi-national corporations and preserving capitalism which is destroying this planet for the elite rather than preserving the environment for all of us-the working classes.
