The McGowan Government has recently indicated it will remove the moratorium on fracking for some regions, and so has condemned 5 million hectares of Western Australia’s best farmland and significant tourism and cultural regions to the risk of being fracked.
Shane Love (Member for Moore) is moving to disallow the lifting of the moratorium in the Lower House today, Wednesday 30 October.
But what's needed is for this to also be done in the Upper House, where it can be voted on.
CALL OR EMAIL YOUR UPPER HOUSE MEMBER TODAY!
Our Upper House Members of Parliament need to know:
- We want fracking banned
- The promised “right to veto” for landholders has NOT been put in place, and doesn't cover fracking during exploration.
- The promised new regulations to protect town water drinking water sources are NOT in place.
- Water is NOT protected across regional areas in the frack zones.
- The proposed new code of practice for frackers is NOT in place.
Ask the following Members of Parliament to keep the ban on fracking in place!
