STOP ADANI DESTROYING OUR LAND AND OUR CULTURE We are gravely concerned about the push by Adani and the Queensland Government to open up the Carmichael Mine on our traditional lands. Our traditional lands are an interconnected and living whole; a vital cultural landscape. It is central to us as a People, and to the maintenance of our identity, laws and consequent rights. If the Carmichael mine were to proceed it would tear the heart out of the land. The scale of this mine means it would have devastating impacts on our native title, ancestral lands and waters, our totemic plants and animals, and our environmental and cultural heritage. It would pollute and drain billions of litres of groundwater, and obliterate important springs systems. It would potentially wipe out threatened and endangered species. It would literally leave a huge black hole, monumental in proportions, where there were once our homelands. These effects are irreversible. Our land will be “disappeared”. Nor would the direct impacts be limited to our lands – they would have cascading effects on the neighbouring lands and waters of other Traditional Owners and other landholders in the region. And the mine would cause damage to climate, unleashing a mass of carbon into the atmosphere and propelling dangerous global warming. We could not in all conscience consent to such wholesale destruction. Nor could we allow such a project to contribute to the dire unfolding effects of climate change that pose such great risks to all peoples. We know that many other people who care deeply about conserving natural places, vital water resources, the great fauna and flora of central Queensland, and a health planet share our concerns about this mine. When we say No, we mean No. https://youtu.be/ZB2JC6yKy_E
SAVE MOUNT PANORAMA
It's important that we let the council know we care about Mt Panorama, the way it is used matters to the people of Bathurst and all the thousands of race goers and visitors that come here every year. It belongs to all people, not just one sporting club, which could easily be located somewhere else.
SAVE VICTORIA'S FOOD BOWL AND GIPPSLAND LAKES. The Lindenow Valley vegetable growing area is only 500m downwind from a proposed mineral sands mine in Glenaladale, East Gippsland. We want the Australian public to know that the area where their veggies are grown is under threat from this mine that is being proposed in an already severely drought and fire affected area, and a traumatised community. If this mine proceeds it is highly likely their veggies will be contaminated from radioactive and highly toxic substances, as well as putting at risk up to 1,500 jobs. If the more than 4GL of water that will be needed by the mine for processing and dust suppression was redirected to growing vegetables, five times more jobs would be created than the 197 jobs the mine proposes to create. 82% of the directly impacted landholders said, in response to a survey question, that they want their land mineral sands mining free. Kalbar is an investment company not a mining company. They propose to dig up 1600 hectares of farm land above subterranean water courses to reach ancient sand dunes 45 metres down, which contain a spectrum of useful but toxic and or nuisance chemicals including Zircon, Rutile, or Titanium Metals with traces of Thorium in the region of the RAMSAR listed Gippsland Lakes. The company proposes to create ten pits from which heavy mineral ore will be extracted and processed on site before transport by road to a port in Gippsland where it will be loaded on to ships for Worldwide distribution. The mining company, or another entity that may buy the mining lease from Kalbar if approval is granted by the Victorian Government, will not be obliged to restore the properties to the state they were in prior to mining commencing. In this conflict, the farmers and some of the landholders of Lindenow, point out that their properties are watered from under the ground by aquifers that fill a chain on ponds even in times of drought. They believe that those water sources are below the surface of the land and above the ore body that will be extracted by open mining techniques. They contend that if approved, the mine will destroy the water courses making restoration of their properties impossible. In addition, the East Gippsland region was recently severely impacted by drought and then bushfire and we cannot afford this blatant destruction of our already damaged and fragile environment. A recent Queensland (2018) mine did not have the financial capacity to restore hundreds of square kilometres of land following a disastrous mining venture. Dont let this happen in our back yard!
