No more gas and coal for Australia

MP Engagement session- 21 May 

Join us at our next online action session on Tuesday 21 May at 7.30pm (AEDT), with guest speaker Carmel Flint, Campaign Co-ordinator at Lock The Gate, who will share her experiences campaigning against gas developments, walking alongside First Nations people, and in Parliament. 

This will be followed by the usual opportunity to take action on local and national campaigns or other current climate issues. We'll support you to put effective pressure on our Federal and State MPs by writing emails and planning calls and visits to them. If you're new to this activity there'll be plenty of help and all the resources you need to get started.

RSVP here - We'd love you to join us again then. As usual, newbies and regulars all welcome!

Last session (April)...

At the April session Peter Moraitis from the Beyond Gas Network briefed us on points to talk to our MPs about ceasing exploration and expansion of methane gas in Australia.

You can find out more at these links from BGN:

  • Talking points on gas
  • Methane emissions - a guide to what MPs need to to make sure Methane emissions are properly recorded
  • Water trigger - request the Environment Minister to call in project proposals - currently proponents are supposed to alert the Minister if their project will damage water resources but relies on self-report and honesty.
  • Duty of care - the proposed new law

For more resources, check out the our dedicated issue briefings pageAt the bottom of the page, in the speech bubbles, are tips for responding to MPs when they reply - or don't! Click on the pictures and links and explore of what's there. We also have templates for calling MPs about climate issues, and for asking your MP for a face-to-face appointment. You can also find links to other climate organisation's campaigns and petitions and useful links on this page.

We'd really appreciate if you could log your contact with elected reps here, or use the button on the webpage. This is important as enables us to assess the impact of MPEGs by tracking the number of emails, visits and calls that we all make.
