The shocking news on Abbot Point has just come through!
Despite the evidence, Environment Minister Greg Hunt has approved 3 million cubic metres of dredging and dumping in the Great Barrier Reef’s water off Abbot Point.
The Minister has ignored the evidence of the damage this will do to the Reef and those who rely on it.
He has ignored the concerns of scientists, tourism operators and the international community.
He has ignored the vast majority of Australians who want dredging and dumping banned in the Reef’s waters.
But he can’t ignore us on Twitter over the next 48 hours.
Tell the Minister you DON’T approve his bad decision by tweeting now using the hashtags #GregDump and #FightfortheReef
