The temporary ban on onshore 'conventional' gas drilling, which has been in place across Victoria since 2014, has expired.
While the ban on unconventional gas drilling and fracking remains in place, the Victorian government's decision to reopen the state to gas companies leaves significant parts of Gippsland and southwest Victoria exposed to exploration.
This is bad news for regional communities, for our farmers, and for our environment and climate.
Friends of the Earth is reactivating the powerful Gasfield Free community network to resist fossil gas.
On Wednesday 11 August, we will launch a new digital resource, DrillWatch, to empower the community resistance.
Attendees will hear from the leaders of the successful campaign that won the moratorium, be among the first to see how DrillWatch can be a platform for the resistance, and find out about next steps.
Register now to join us for the launch of DrillWatch.
