Why

Join us for an evening/afternoon of live music and learn about the campaign to protect water climate and communities from fracking in the Northern Territory, and how you can get involved.

Mudburra and Jingili musicians and long time anti-fracking campaigners Ray Dimakarri Dixon and Stuart Joel Nugget are visiting from their homes in the NT to share some of their beautiful songs about the Country they are fighting to protect and ask for your support.

Check out some of Ray's music here and check out some of Stuart’s music here.

Ray and Stuart will be joined by a group of Territorians concerned about plans for the massive new Beetaloo Basin shale gas development.

They are on the east coast calling on the federal government to step in and stop this enormous threat to NT water security and to a livable climate future for us all.

Hear firsthand from community members on the front line of the struggle against fracking, and learn what you can do here in the Sydney to support them and hold the federal government accountable.

Doors open 5.30 event starts 6pm. This is a free event with donations welcome at the door. RSVP appreciated. For more details and all the latest visit Music for Country at Frack Free NT.

Communities are in the fight of their lives to protect country in the Northern Territory, as the fracking industry threatens water security, cultural sites and the climate.

Under threat are so many precious places – including the recharge area for Mataranka Hot Springs, the mighty Roper River, and Jurrkulu-Ijibarda (Lake Woods) and upstream areas.

Jikaya (Lake Woods) is the Northern Territory's largest inland lake. It is culturally very important to Traditional Owners and is internationally significant for birdlife.
