ACLAND FIGHTING FUND
Please chip in to make sure the legal win against the Acland Stage 3 coal mine on the Darling Downs isn't overturned.
The Queensland environment department just rejected the mine, following a Land Court decision last year that the impacts on groundwater will be too severe and the noise and dust impacts on local landholders are too great. You can read a short summary of the Land Court decision here.
But New Hope Coal have appealed the Land Court decision. Local farmers need support to defend the Land Court decision and stop this damaging project once and for all.
This legal challenge is the final hurdle. If the farmers succeed, then the project will be finished. Please chip in to help them get it across the line. It's a fight for the Great Artesian Basin and the right to protect groundwater statewide - and we can't afford to lose.
