Why Origin Energy?
For years now, Traditional Owners and Aboriginal communities across the Northern Territory have been fighting to protect their country from dangerous fracking.
But now, since the NT Government lifted the moratorium on fracking last year - Origin Energy is lining up to be the first company to start fracking for gas in the NT’s Beetaloo Basin, but we won’t let them!
Origin Energy pride themselves on their “good energy” brand and claim to take climate change seriously but fracking for shale gas in the NT tells us otherwise.
Origin Energy have a track record putting their profits ahead of people and our planet - trying to buy our politicians and bully anyone who disagrees with them. In the last financial year, Origin Energy paid $0 tax but spent hundreds of thousands of dollars donating to political parties, attempting to get the support - or silence - of politicians and continue their toxic business model.
But if there’s one thing big companies like Origin Energy care about, it’s their brand and public image.
That’s why we’re building a powerful network of customers and concerned members of the public - to jam their “good energy” brand, put the public spotlight on their plans to frack without proper consent from Aboriginal communities, and have conversations with staff members to shift the company and stop fracking in the NT for good.
No matter who you are or where you live, there are powerful actions you can take to make this campaign huge and stop fracking.
