STOP a huge, dirty coal mine from being developed in the heart of Australia’s food bowl

This petition had 52,849 supporters

A massive Chinese coal mine is threatening to ruin Australia’s best farming country. Putting a huge, dirty coal mine in Australia’s food bowl is a dumb, irresponsible idea.

We’re talking about a massive hole the size of 4620 football fields – roughly two-thirds the size of Sydney Harbour.

The Breeza/Liverpool Plains are Australia’s most fertile country – rich black soil with reliable underground water.  To the mining companies however these wonderful assets are just waste products that hinder their access to the dirty coal.  

Modelling shows that the mine will damage, if not destroy, the abundant fresh groundwater that makes this land so productive.

This mine is  a result of some seriously dodgy decisions. From a corrupt Government Minister approving the exploration licence, to Ministers/ Governments changing regulations in favour of miners over food producers. 

We can mine the land and make a few quick bucks, or we can leave it as it is and keep farming for thousands of years.  It’s not just about us either – there’s a big koala population and significant Aboriginal sites under threat.

The project has been conditionally approved by Minister Greg Hunt MP

This mine is a dumb, irresponsible idea. We are fighting to stop it becoming a reality - but we need your help!!

Please lend your voice and join us in asking Minister Hunt and the NSW government to STOP the development of a huge dirty coal mine in the heart of Australia's food bowl.
