Origin Energy’s decision to pull out of exploring and fracking at three sites is testament to the effectiveness of a grassroots campaign led by Traditional Owners. Pip Hinman reports.
Following Origin Energy's decision to close Eraring coal-fired power station early, calls are growing for a federal transition plan. Niko Leka reports.
Traditional Owners from the Northern Territory have again made it clear to Origin Energy that they do not want gas infrastructure crossing through their country and sacred sites, writes Pip Hinman.
Traditional Owners from the Gulf Country in the Northern Territory showed their opposition to fracking for shale gas outside Origin Energy’s AGM on October 18. The protest was organised by SEED — the Indigenous Youth Climate Network.
Traditional Owner Nancy Hoosan said: “I’m not just talking for myself and my people, I’m talking for everyone. No matter what colour you are or what language you speak, we drink the same water.
“Australian government, listen to us. We don’t want fracking in our country.”
