From 2011 until 2017, the Victorian community campaigned hard to win the ban on fracking and the moratorium on onshore conventional gas drilling.
While fracking (unconventional gas drilling) was banned permanently, a moratorium was placed on onshore conventional exploration and drilling. This has been in force since 2014, and will expire on June 30, 2020.
Unless we act now.
In the next few months, the state government will decide whether to extend the moratorium or let it lapse. We have until March to build a strong voice demanding that the state government acts to protect our state by extending the onshore gas moratorium for another five years.
Please join a simple, 10-minute action in early February to show your support for the moratorium and call for a five-year extension.
The time for new fossil fuels is long over.
