Supporters in Farrer - we need you!

Our actions are ramping up in takayna / Tarkine, and we need support from people on the ground in the Federal Environment Minister's electorate.

 

Submit your details below and we will be in touch.

 

We are looking for passionate, self-starting supporters on the ground in Farrer who can help us hold a daily vigil outside Sussan Ley’s electorate office, to remind her of the importance of her decision. We only have until June 8th to get the message across.

 

 

The mine has been referred to Environment Minister Sussan Ley for assessment under the EPBC Act – she will have the final say over whether this mine needs to have a formal Environmental Impact Assessment undertaken. We know it does, because takayna / Tarkine is home to numerous threatened species like the Masked Owl – a fact that MMG has purposefully obfuscated in their submission.

 

Submit your details here and we will be in touch soon.

    I would hope MMG would be required to look at more sophisticated approaches to deal with mining waste than a simplistic and relatively financially inexpensive solution like another tailings dam – which are known to be environmentally expensive. A formal Environmental Impact Assessment should be a given!

    This area is a pristine part of the world and should not be destroyed by any company, let alone a foreign one, for short term financial gain. The toxins that would end up in the tailings dam are inconsistent with the heritage listing of the area, let alone the damage that would be done in their construction! I have been privileged to visit this area twice and do not want to see it destroyed!

    I find this information incredibly hard to comprehend, surely our government can’t allow this to happen. How much more damage can the mining industry cause to our environment.
