Save regional towns - save Oakey

This petition had 8,574 supporters

There’s a lot of talk about creating jobs in regional Queensland. But what about the 700 existing jobs we’ll lose if New Acland mine shuts?

We want to have our say about what we want for our community and our future.

Existing jobs are the lifeblood of regional towns like ours.

The mine has been part of our community for over 15 years – they do a great job of looking after the people and the land. Closing the mine and decimating local jobs will have a domino effect across our region.

More than 50 local farmers work at the mine – if the mine shuts, some will have to leave their land.

We never in our wildest dreams thought we could lose the mine.

We’re speaking up now – it’s time for the majority voice to be heard.

It’s not just about us here in Oakey – if it could happen here, it could happen to you.

Regional towns across Queensland are under threat – everyone knows when the jobs go the community can fall apart. It’s hard for a town to get back on its feet when jobs are lost.

Thank you for taking the time to sign this petition. It means the world to us in this regional Queensland town, and many others across the state.
