Green groups are under attack. Cheered on by the fossil fuel industry, the Government has launched an inquiry into charities who campaign to protect nature.
They’re considering taxing the donations that ordinary Australians give to defend our wilderness. If the government get their way, it’ll cost ordinary people more to support the campaigns they love, and pull the rug out from under the organisations who protect our environment. Check out the hundreds of faces and stories of Australians standing up for our right to nature here, or the story of supporter Sid here.
So our movement came together to fight back. More than 400 of us gathered outside the inquiry into environmental organisations to show our support for campaigns that protect the Earth. Massive thank you to everyone who supported the event!
