Lock the Gate would like to invite you to an Acland Info Night, an opportunity to find out the truth about the region, its history, the impacts that the locals have already facing, and how we can make sure the area is protected.

The Qld Government will soon make a decision around the future of the Darling Downs. A decision that will either put the integrity of the Qld Land Court in jeopardy or make history by supporting the farmers and locals in the area and protect groundwater for generations to come. 

Last year the Qld Land Court recommended rejection for the Acland coal mine expansion. Come along to this information night to find out why and understand the facts about the potential impacts.

Join us to hear from:

  • Sean Ryan from the Environmental Defenders Office who will explain the findings of the Land Court case.
  • Paul King who represented many of the objectors in the case who will speak about the rich history of the region and campaign.
  • Ellie Smith and Hayley Troupe from Lock the Gate will talk discuss what's next for the campaign and how you can help stop the mine and protect the region permanently.
