Free  Politics

It’s time to end fossil fuel donations and subsidies


Ready to step things up? Join our Pollution Free Politics Push to really serve it up to our worst climate blockers the week before the election. Peaceful direct actions are happening in major cities across the country starting Monday June 20th.

Despite more than two decades of talking, our climate is at a crisis point because our leaders have allowed themselves to be captured by the fossil fuel industry. If our politicians are serious about climate change, then they need to stop taking money from and giving money to the big polluters. Watch this short video to find out more.


How the polluters buy our politicians — and what they get in return.

$3,700,000

Donated by the fossil fuel industry to the major political parties since the last Federal Election

$7.7bn

In taxpayers’ money will be paid to the big polluters as subsidies in 2016-17

$2,000+

For every dollar donated to our politicians since the last election, the big polluters will receive $2000+ in return this year

– It sure pays to pollute –

We’re calling on all politicians and candidates to take a pledge calling for an end to taking donations from and giving subsidies to the fossil fuel industry.

THE PLEDGE

I personally support, and call on all politicians and parties to support:
• a ban on donations from fossil fuel companies, and
• a ban on subsidies to fossil fuel companies.

This does not include a ban on subsidies to Australia’s farmers.
