    Our Reef, Our Climate, Our Queensland

    To: Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Minister Anthony Lynham, 

    Experts are telling us that the Great Barrier Reef is experiencing the worst coral bleaching event ever seen and it is all because of climate change. Our reef is grappling with the impacts of climate change. You say that you care about protecting the reef but your actions speak louder than your words.

    Recently, you granted the mining leases for Adani's Carmichael mega-mine. As Queenslanders, we know that outdated coal projects like Carmichael mine cannot coexist with our reef. We don't want workers and their communities left in the lurch when the future of the fossil fuel industry looks rocky. Queenslanders have a vision for a future powered by the wind and the sun, which supports healthier communities and protects the Great Barrier Reef for our kids. 

    We have all of the technology and people power we need to transform our energy system, create healthier communities and an economy that provides thousands of clean jobs for Queensland. We are calling on you to stand up for our reef, our climate and Queensland's future by:

    • Actively creating a clean jobs plan for Queensland that creates healthier and sustainable communities
    • Developing a fair and just transition plan for workers and communities away from outdated fuels and towards clean energy

    Australia Says Welcome

    In September 2015 Brisbane came together and rallied to show that Australia says welcome. This is just the beginning. 

    We can and should do more to help people escaping war and persecution in this humanitarian crisis. 

    Add your name to the growing number of Queenslanders getting active to show that Australia says 'Welcome'.

    Q: Tony Abbott is gone: Now it’s time to make sure his policies that are hurting Australians every day go too. On issue after issue, Australians have stood up and acted. The direction Tony Abbott’s government was taking us was wrong, and the change of leadership recognises this. But what is the most important policy that Malcolm Turnbull should change as new PM?
    A: Price and put a cap on carbon pollution

    Great to see the Working for Queenslanders team taking action and helping share the #EndOfCoal and #KeepItInTheGround campaigns agains the Galilee Basin Coal Mine proposals.

    Indeed, it does seem like a great opportunity for #WorkingForQueenslanders and the Queensland Unions to help persuade the Queensland Government to tell Adani what Australia and the world has been saying for years – pack up and leave our Reef and climate alone!

    Thanks for the Campaign Action!

    All of us have rights. It's time for Queensland to recognise them through a bill of rights. Support a review. http://www.workingforqueenslanders.org.au/bill_of_rights?recruiter_id=75279

    Queensland's Bill Of Rights

    498 votes

    Queensland is a big place. 

    Queenslanders are ready for a big conversation, a conversation that is worth having - a conversation for our rights. 

    It's time for a real review into a bill of rights in Queensland. We all have rights as people, it's time that our democracy recognised those rights and gave them legal protection against politicians that go too far. 

    Do you support a bill of rights in Queensland?
