The Lock the Gate Alliance (www.lockthegate.org.au) is a national grassroots organisation made up of over 150,000 supporters and more than 250 local groups who are concerned about risky coal mining, coal seam gas and fracking.
The mission of Lock the Gate is to protect Australia’s natural, cultural and agricultural resources from inappropriate mining and to educate and empower all Australians to demand sustainable solutions to food and energy production.
The Lock the Gate staff all bring unique and broad skills, local connections and gutsy input to campaigns across the country. They are passionate about the work they do to protect Australian communities from coal and gas mining.
The Beetaloo Basin in the Northern Territory has been identified by the Federal and Territory Governments as a priority region for large scale fracking gasfields. It is a region of incredible beauty and significance to the Traditional Owners, with precious waterways, groundwater systems and landscapes set to be industrialised.
New gas pipelines are being touted to get the fracked gas to export terminals. The voices of thousands of concerned community members have been successful in putting some areas off limits to fracking but are now being ignored as the companies push ahead with their fracking plans.
The Lock the Gate Alliance is seeking an experienced campaigner and organiser to support and elevate the voices of impacted communities and prevent damage, guide implementation of strategy and to engage with other stakeholders and supporting organisations nation-wide.
