SAY NO TO A TOXIC TAILINGS DAM IN THE TARKINE | Create.Change.

The Tarkine contains Australia’s largest temperate rainforest, a galaxy of rare and endangered wildlife and some of the richest Aboriginal heritage in the hemisphere. The latter has been inscribed on the list of National Heritage.

Right now, the foreign owned mining company MMG are drilling to assess where a new tailings dam should be placed, where they will store millions of cubic meters of toxic waste.

In an average year there are 2-5 major Tailings dam failures, involving significant ecological damage.

“The Brumadinho dam disaster, Brazil, January 25, 2019, where as many as 252 people are unaccounted for, and at least 134 are dead. The disaster released 12 million cubic meters of iron waste leading into the Paraopeba River.”

SIGN THE PETITION 

Tell Federal Environmet Minister Sussan Ley to stop MMG building a Tailings Dam in the Tarkine.
