It’s on ladies and gentlemen we’re taking the fight for the reef to court . The fight to prevent the dredging and dumping of waste into the Great Barrier Reef has gone legal.
Overwhelming support both vocal and financial has meant that we can challenge the government over its decision. Already Lend Lease one of the largest developers in Australia has pulled out of the expansion of the Abbot Point Coal terminal and international outrage and condemnation every from the International Monetary Fund means that support for changing the reefs protected status is dwindling at an alarming rate (alarming for the government not for those who have been fighting this stupidity).
There is still much further to go but it is no longer a foregone conclusion and we have proved to our arrogant Prime Minister and the puppet theatre he calls a parliament that we will not accept the dictates of lunacy and destroy that which makes Australia great.
Congratulations must go to The Australian Youth Climate Coalition for applying the pressure to Lend Lease with such satisfying results. Thank you also to all of those who used the link from a previous post to sign the petition that helped get us this far.
