The Limestone Coast Protection Alliance is a local grassroots community fighting against unconventional mining and exploration.
The Limestone Coast area is home to farmers, Aboriginal custodians, conservationists and local residents who all resent the devastation of our land and waterways through profiteering mining corporations.
We stand in strong solidarity with the Limestone Coast Protection Alliance.
From their petition:
The South East of South Australia (Limestone Coast) is known for its world famous clean and green produce, including wine, beef, lamb, vegetables, fruit, and crops. Tourism plays an important role, with the UNESCO listed Naracoorte Caves Park, RAMSAR listed Bool Lagoon and Piccaninnie Ponds, the wine trails, beautiful coastal towns, the Blue Lake and other spectacular areas.
The South East makes up 2.2% of the state and contains over 40% of the state’s prime agricultural land. Over $1 billion in food, wine and fibre is produced annually. With significant exports, it is of paramount importance that our ‘clean and green’ image is not compromised by proposed unconventional/conventional gas and mineral mining, which threatens our groundwater, agricultural land productivity and tourism.
