Call Anthony Albanese NOW!

Why are we calling the Prime Minister?

After months of invite-only, closed door consultations on Labor’s promised environmental law reforms, the Albanese Government has caved to the fossil fuel industry, breaking an election commitment by splitting up and delaying urgent environmental law reform during one of the worst Great Barrier Reef coral bleaching events in Australian history. 

From the beginning, the coal and gas industry asked for private briefings on the draft new laws, and just last month, the resources lobby said they wanted Minister Plibersek to ‘slow down, split up and water down’ these reforms, aimed to deliberately destroy any progress to make our environment laws stronger. This week, that’s what the Albanese Government has said they’ll do.

This could ruin our shot at fixing the laws that continue to allow the government to approve fossil fuels in a climate crisis. 

Will you call the Prime Minister and ask him to pass environmental laws that actually protect the environment?

What do I say?

Say your name and where you’re calling from - if Prime Minister Albanese is your local MP be sure to let them know. Say you’d like to leave a message for the Prime Minister: 

  • You’re worried about news stories that the government is planning on watering down environment laws and delaying reform.
  • You’re appalled that the Environment Minister Plibersek and Prime Minister Albanese are listening to the coal and gas industries instead of protecting nature from climate change.
  • Climate change is the biggest threat to nature - the Great Barrier Reef is being hit right now with record coral bleaching and forests in WA are collapsing.
  • We’re in a climate crisis and we need to see the government make changes to our environment laws that reflect that.
  • The new laws should stop heavily polluting projects from going ahead, not just tinker about the edges. 

Thank them for their time.
