Now, after over a year of campaigning by Friends of the Earth Brisbane's coal campaign, Six Degrees, the Queensland Government has announced they will change the legislation to protect good quality farmland from destructive mining expansion, and are welcoming comments on their discussion paper.
Please add your support to the creation of strong and broad protection to give certainty to landholders. The alternative is a weak policy riddled with loopholes, which is exactly what the coal industry will be lobbying for.
You can use the form on the campaign website to make a submission which will go straight to the Government. Feel free to use the example text provided, or to customise your own submission. For more information, go to the Government website here.
