Queensland Communities

Communities, families and neighbours are being adversely impacted by inappropriate mining throughout Queensland. Grassroots community groups are springing up all over the state to join the David and Goliath battle. 

The Lock The Gate Alliance is a national grassroots organisation and a unique coalition of farmers, conservationists and Traditional Owners opposed to inappropriate coal and gas mining. The group transcends political divides and is unprecedented in the history of Australian social movements.

Nationally, Lock the Gate has more than 200 local groups and more than 30,000 supporters. Queensland has more than 5,000 supporters and that number is growing quickly as more and more people hear what’s happening to our food lands, water, air and communities.
