‘A sad day for land, water, climate and people. Liberals, Nationals and Labor just voted down my bill to give people the right to say no to coal & gas.
Profits ahead of people - that’s what’s happening with CSG, shale gas, tight gas and coal mining.
Our WA, SA, Tas and NSW Senators spoke passionately about protecting the environment, water and communities from these dangerous and dirty industries, which have first savaged Queensland and now want to wreck the rest of the country.
The Greens pay tribute to all Australians fighting this industry, including the Lock the Gate Alliance who were in the public gallery for the bill debate.
We won’t give up and I know you won’t either - and together we will prevail, in the end.
