New report from Lock the Gate
“Last week Lock the Gate Alliance released a detailed report into the impacts of the SDA on our community, the floodplains and good food producing land. It shows that we can never meet the target of doubling food production in QLD by 2040 if we carve up 260,000 hectares of productive farming land for coal transport.”- from John Burnett
