No fracked gas pipeline through the Northern Territory

No fracked gas pipeline through the Northern Territory

Dear Minister, please don't approve a dangerous fracked gas pipeline through the NT.

Why is this important?

The NT is a beautiful place, full of thriving cultures and communities. But right now, the NT government has plans to build a massive gas pipeline, cutting through sacred country, to pump fracked gas from unapproved wells across the Territory.

Traditional Owners, Aboriginal Station Owners and community members have voiced their opposition to this project over and over again, and voted for NT Labor on their promise to slow down fracking.

How can you approve a giant pipeline for fracking projects that haven't been approved, and when you supposedly have a moratorium on fracking?!


Reasons for signing

  • Fracking is environmentally destructive. We have evidence of contaminated land, ground water and sub terrain water storage plus what has happened to food producers where fracking has been allowed, e.g. NSW. There should never be any further fracking and the consequent, scientifically proven, long term damage. Why won't the pollies listen?
  • Fracking will release more methane into the Earth's atmosphere, further heating our beautiful planet. Politicians start thinking of the environment rather than being re-elected - wouldn't that make a nice change!
  • Fracking has a terrible environmental record around the world. Time is up for Fossil fuels and Fossil companies .
