Our Land, Our Water, Our Future Campaign


Short description—organiser

The Our Land, Our Water, Our Future campaign comes from an appreciation of the old adage, 'united we stand, divided we fall". It has been created to build a common voice for the countless communities that are standing up to protect the places they love. By joining together we can build a movement that is greater than the sum of its parts and can change the rules that govern mining in NSW.

The campaign was initiated once it became clear that the NSW Government was going to break its election promises to improve the regulation of mining - effectively betraying farmers, rural industries and the wider NSW community.

Our goal is to achieve legislative reform that would see no-go zones put in place to protect farmland and rural industries, our water resources, special wild places, and residential communities from coal and gas.
