ECNT supporters have helped campaign strongly against the McArthur River Mine for decades. We are calling on you now to assist us as we join forces with Borroloola community in 2023.
The McArthur River Mine campaign has been developed in direct response to the NT Minister for Mining & Industry’s decision to reduce the mine’s environmental bond from around $520 million to around $400 million was made unlawfully, and the decision is thus invalid.
The Environment Centre NT, together with Borroloola residents Jack Green and Josie Davey (represented by the Environmental Defenders Office) have gone to court challenging the NT Government’s decision to slash the environmental bond for Glencore’s controversial McArthur River Mine by almost $120 million.
This is not a decision we’ve made lightly, but we are taking this action in solidarity with Borroloola community, who have been fighting against environmental damage from this mine for many years.
In October 2021 the Sydney Environment Institute held a forum about the McArthur River Mine, featuring Jack Green, Senior Garrwa Leader, Artist and Cultural Warrior, as well as Kirsty Howey, the Environment Centre NT's co-director, amongst other fascinating panellists. You can watch the forum here:
