For the first time in history, Australians have the opportunity to take climate change arguments to our country’s highest court.
Hi, I'm June Norman and I'm a member of conservation organisation Coast and Country.
Represented by the experienced non-profit lawyers at EDO Qld, we're going to the High Court to ask it to hear arguments about the climate change impacts of coal mines for the very first time.
It's taken us years to get to this point. And we can't do it without your urgent support, as our funds have been exhausted.
Will you please make a tax-deductible donation to EDO Qld today? The hearing is on 7 April so this request is urgent!
Our application for special leave has been filed with the High Court to appeal the Court of Appeal decision with respect to the climate change impacts of the Alpha coal mine.
If we win, it will confirm that decision-makers in Queensland have to consider the environmental harm from large coal mines on our climate and the Reef.
Please, help us take Australia's first climate case to the High Court by making a tax-deductible donation to EDO Qld today.
Coast & Country member, and Qld grandmother
PS. Your donation goes to EDO Qld, not to us. If your generous donations exceed the funds needed for this case, they will go towards the other climate legal work of EDO Qld. As a community legal centre, you'll get the most from every dollar you donate.
Sean Ryan Principal Solicitor of EDO Qld says, “All around the world courts are accepting science, and overturning government inaction on climate change. But legal actions are time consuming and costly. Without your urgent support this case cannot continue.”
