Victoria bans fracking

The Australians have been blazing an anti fracking  trail that we have followed for five years. First they gave us Lock the gate, then they gave us the inspiration of Nanas and now an outright fracking ban in Victoria. Chloe Aldenhoven is one of those trail blazers that coordinated lock the gate in Victoria along with other Friends of the Earth activists and a dedicated community movement. When we met Chloe in Paris not only was she a very inspirational speaker, she was the most unassuming and humble activist that you are likely to meet. The struggles of Australian activists has the greatest similarity to the UK , both politically and socially. Our fracking story has followed in the footsteps of Australia and if history is to be repeated we should expect to see fracking bans and moratorium imposed throughout England within the coming months.

Victoria has made a statement “Victorians have made it clear that they don’t support fracking and that the health and environmental risks involved outweigh any potential benefits.” – Premier Daniel Andrews.

Hey all,

A huge day for us with the unconventional gas campaign in Victoria.  After a mammoth 5 year campaign, a huge community mobilisation, our Premier Daniel Andrews has placed a permanent ban on all forms of unconventional gas (coal seam, shale and tight), including fracking.

“Our farmers produce some of the world’s cleanest and freshest food. We won’t put that at risk with fracking.”

We are ecstatic, and grateful to the international movement for all support and inspiration for this big legislative win.

Onwards and upwards!
