Shale gas fracking is a disaster for:

Water

The NT is connected by one water table. When that water is polluted by the dangerous fracking process, all of our water is poisoned.

Country

Our deserts, springs, plains, and bushland are too precious to risk with dangerous fracking wells. It’ll poison groundwater, pollute the air, destroy sacred sites, and change our seasons.

Health

Fracking poisons water and land, and emits toxic fumes into the air. States across the world have banned fracking because it makes people sick.

Pledge to Switch from Origin Energy

If you’re an Origin customer concerned about the company’s plans to frack in the Northern Territory, take the pledge to switch your energy provider in 2019. If hundreds of customers pledge to switch energy providers over fracking, it will send a huge message to Origin and demonstrate they have no social licence to frack in the NT. If they still refuse to listen, then together we’ll switch from Origin in 2019 to hold them accountable for unethical decisions. Will you take the pledge?

Will you sign?

Northern Territory Fracking Map

51% of the Northern Territory is under oil and gas licences

Right now, 51% of the NT is covered in exploration licenses for oil and gas. If all of this went ahead, much of the Aboriginal owned land would have country polluted by the shale gas industry. Our deserts, springs, plains, and bushland are too precious to risk with dangerous fracking wells. It’ll poison groundwater, pollute the air, destroy sacred sites, and change our seasons.

Climate Justice Now!

Self determination

Communities have a right to have the final say about what happens on their country, and to make decisions about their own lives. Only when communities have the freedom to define their own path, can our people truly heal.

Land Rights not mining rights

Native Title law in this country is broken. It is not strong enough to protect country from mining companies and greedy politicians who can’t take no for an answer. Together we must strengthen our land rights and put community before profits.

Solar in communities

The NT is one of the sunniest places on earth, but right now many remote communities rely on expensive diesel generators to keep the lights on. Communities can become energy self sufficient and supply clean and cheap power with solar and batteries.
