Time for Affirmative Action! LET’S CROWD FUND LEGAL ACTION! to Save the Great Barrier Reef
DON’T LET TONY ABBOTT DESTROY THE GREAT BARRIER REEF WORLD HERITAGE AREA !
There’s little doubt that not only Australians, but millions of people worldwide care about the Great Barrier Reef and want it to be saved.
Thousands of words and revelations of bad management practices; government refusal to monitor any environmental conditions; lack of independent audits; significant and potentially irreversible loss of wildlife… the list goes on and on – have not delayed or stopped the destruction.
But there’s a limit to how much bad news any human can stand without some inspiration, some solutions which are achievable.
After lengthy considerations of all options, people protest, petitions, demonstrations, boycotts, lobbying, media efforts etc etc. Australians for Animals believes that there is only one effective option to save the Great Barrier Reef.
A lawsuit against the Queensland and Federal governments over their failure to enforce relevant legislation; the blatant violations of conditions of consent; the inaction over loss of endangered and threatened species – is the only way the Reef will be spared from downlisting and destruction.
To run a lawsuit which will be hard fought by governments, backed by industry, requires the best legal experts and funds.
This blog has access to legal advice but to get the best minds, funds are needed. And lawsuits are costly.
If the Reef is to be saved, we need funds, legal experts and focused public support. It can be done. Social media can turn the toughest campaigns around. If thousands of concerned individuals donate a couple of dollars each, a mountain is soon created.
Take President Obama’s campaign as an example.
Politicians needs to know they are elected to serve the people. Not the corporations.
