Give us back our $5.5 billion
The Federal Government has just abandoned their promise to close our dirtiest coal-fired power stations like Hazelwood.
They claimed that the power station owners wanted too much money – that their asset value was still high despite the carbon price. So why is the government also handing over $5.5 billion in compensation to these same companies for loss of asset value?
Take action now. Sign this petition to call on the government to withdraw the $5.5 billion compensation to big polluters and allow the carbon price to do its job.
