Petitioning the Prime Minister and all Federal Parliamentarians: Don’t frack up Australia
This new scandal is unfolding as the Federal Government continues its push to frack up Australia. They’re now proposing two massive new gas fracking pipelines – one from WA to the east coast, and one from the Northern Territory to South Australia.
Can you sign our open letter to Malcolm Turnbull and the Federal Government rejecting these ridiculous proposals?
“The Federal Government is also talking about bankrolling these projects with public money. They plan to waste our hard won taxes on pipelines that will damage our most iconic landscapes like the Kimberley and Arnhem Land. If allowed to go ahead, they will blow our money on projects that aren’t viable and that will do untold harm to our land and water.
We need to fight back hard from right across the country. We’ve already got one burning river, and we can’t accept any more damage.
Ridiculous stuff. Instead of choosing renewable energy and storage, Turnbull is trying to build massive new fracking pipelines across Australia. Tell him not to frack up this country: www.lockthegate.org.au/dont_frack_oz
Science, not silence! On April 22 2017, we peacefully walk out of the lab and into the streets.
The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community.
Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists. The incredible, immediate outpouring of support has made it clear that these concerns are also shared by hundreds of thousands of people around the world.
The politicisation of science has given policy makers permission to reject overwhelming evidence and is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.
We are scientists and science enthusiasts. We come from all races, religions, gender identities, sexual orientations, socioeconomic backgrounds, political perspectives and nationalities. Our diversity is our greatest strength: a wealth of opinions, perspectives and ideas is critical for the scientific process. What unites us is a love of science and an insatiable curiosity. We all recognise that science is everywhere and affects everyone. Science is often an arduous process but it is also thrilling. A universal human curiosity and dogged persistence is the greatest hope for the future.
This movement cannot and will not end with a march. Our plans for policy change and community outreach will start with marches worldwide but it is imperative that we continue to celebrate and defend science at all levels - from local schools to federal agencies - throughout the world.

Santos is one of Australia's biggest oil and gas companies - and one of the worst, when it comes to destruction of the environment.
We have coordinated a shareholder resolution that will force Santos to face the cold, hard facts about what climate change means for its business.
Santos is one of Australia's largest companies, so it's highly likely your super fund is invested in the oil and gas giant, giving them a vote on this important resolution. Please tell your super fund to support the climate risk resolution! superswitch.org.au/santos
