Greens Member of Parliament, Robin Chapple is absolutely appalled at the environmental disaster on Koolan Island with the Mt Gibson iron ore mine flooding yet again.
“How many times does this mine have to flood before the problem is fixed properly?” Mr Chapple asked.
“This is a classic example of the mismanagement of a mine that will now severely impact on our marine life in Kimberley!

The Greens have put the Abbott Government on notice to provide a statement on its long term commitment to homelessness and affordable housing today.
The Australian Senate has passed a Greens' motion calling on the NSW government to reverse its decision to truncate the heavy rail line into Newcastle and the Federal government to commit to investing in public transport infrastructure in regional Australia.
The Australian Greens said today that Government's efforts on biosecurity are undermined by their reckless budget cuts and lack of meaningful action on climate change.
"The Government has lauded the fact they've introduced their biosecurity bill to Parliament today, but they're ignoring the fact that their budget cuts are actively undermining Australia's biosecurity protections," Senator Rachel Siewert, Australian Greens agriculture spokesperson said today.
