SNAP Online Action: Call NT Chief Minister Gunner
We've just heard that despite remote Aboriginal communities being most at risk to COVID-19, the NT Government is still deciding whether or not to allow gas fracking operations to go ahead. This is outrageous.
Coronavirus is already present in the NT and Aboriginal communities are worried that even with the NT borders being closed, fly in-fly out mining and fracking companies such as Origin Energy could be given exemptions to move through towns which could rapidly spread the virus into remote communities.
We can’t let this happen. The NT Government cannot risk the health and livelihoods of Aboriginal communities for the profits of a risky, polluting gas industry.The spread of coronavirus is already a major concern for the health of many Aboriginal communities – but this is even more prominent for those living near gas fracking operations in the Beetaloo and McArthur basin regions.
Join our online call party via Zoom today from 12noon to make a call to the NT Chief Minister Michael Gunner today to urge him to declare fracking as “non essential” and to immediately shut down all gas fracking operations in the NT.
We will provide you with all the details you need to make the call, including a briefing, call script + phone number - just BYO phone. Just RSVP on the panel to your left and we will send you the Zoom link :)
Can't make the online call party? Your can still call Gunner in your own time - we've pulled together a handy call guide here: https://nt.seedmob.org.au/call_gunner2003
