Don't mine the Tarkine Tony

Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke has refused to grant Emergency Heritage listing for the Tarkine wilderness of Tasmania despite the threat of massive new open cut mine, and has now granted a weak assessment process for the three of those mines. It's clear these mines won't be properly scrutinised, even though the fate of the last healthy Tasmanian Devils in the wild hangs on the details.

Thanks to GetUp members the below ad ran nationally to ensure Tony Burke is held to account - giving the Tasmanian devil a voice at a time when only the miners are being heard. Please contact Tony Burke now and let him know you don't support mining the Tarkine.
