Letter from Lock the Gate

Lock the Gate Alliance

Dear ,
We've hope that you had a wonderful, refreshing Christmas break. It seems that things are already heating up this year.

AGL just announced yesterday that they are going to drop their plans for a gasfield at Gloucester, cease CSG production at their Camden Gas Project in 2023, and sell off their Qld assets!

That’s some kind of trifecta!

The brave, determined people of Gloucester and Camden have prevailed.  We can’t give them enough credit for the fact that they never gave up and never backed down.

Huge congratulations and respect to all the extraordinary people and community groups who worked so hard to achieve this outcome.

Casting our minds back to 2015, we’ve put together a snappy little video to pay tribute to the brilliant successes from the year that was. We hope you will watch and enjoy! - click here

It’s a testament to you, and to everything you’ve done to deliver these types of outcomes.

And there’s lots more coming up.  Some of the big priorities coming up next for our movement are:

The imminent decision by the Victorian Government on the future of unconventional gas

The Northern Territory election due in June this year, where fracking is a major issue

The legal challenge against the infamous Acland Stage 3 coal mine in Qld which starts in March, and support for families being forced to live in gasfields

Putting the pressure on Santos to withdraw its plans for 850 gas wells near Narrabri, and support for Hunter communities facing harmful coal mine expansions

So, there’s plenty to get on with and plenty of fun to be had.

In particular, we’ve listed a few upcoming community events below that you might want to get to if you can.  Enjoy!

Looking forward to a tremendous year!

Thanks for standing with us,

Phil Laird
