Prime Minister must reject anti-democratic attack on environment charities

4 May 2016


Environment Victoria today called on the Prime Minister to reject the Inquiry Report into the Register of Environment Organisations.

A House of Representatives Inquiry into environment groups’ tax-deductibility failed to find any evidence of breaches of the rules by charities, so instead attempts to silence environment groups by imposing limits on advocacy and tying charities up in red tape.

Environment Victoria CEO Mark Wakeham said today:

“This inquiry was anti-democratic and unfair in its targeting of environmental charities. It is an attempt to shut down community voices on environmental issues.
