We’re in a climate emergency, yet the Andrews Labor Government has just lifted the ban on gas drilling in Victoria.
From 2011 to 2017, the Victorian community fought hard to stop dirty and dangerous gas fracking and drilling across our state. Together we won a permanent ban on fracking and a pause on ‘conventional’ gas drilling until June 2020.
But now Daniel Andrews has lifted the ban on convention drilling on farmlands.
The timing is awful. Daniel Andrews and Victorian Labor are sneaking this announcement through while everyone is busy coping with COVID-19.
Right now, COVID-19 is everybody’s focus - as it should be. But in the months, years and decades to come, the decisions made today will have a profound impact on our climate and the planet. We can’t let Andrews get away with burying this destructive decision.
