The Australian Government wants to restrict the rights of green groups to challenge mining and other developments, according to a report in The Guardian.
The decision to place restrictions comes after the federal court overturned approval for the controversial Carmichael mine in Queensland.
As a result, the government is seeking to remove the ability of most environmental organisations to challenge developments under federal laws unless they can show they are, “directly affected” by the development.
This is undemocratic! Government should not interfere in the legal system. Will you join me in demanding the federal government does not move to legislate against environmental groups?
