The Murray-Darling Basin is the lifeblood for our communities, wildlife, 20,000 farms and millions of people.
But right now, a few rogue irrigators in NSW appear to be stealing billions of litres of river water.
Despite alarming evidence of illegal activity, it looks like people at the highest levels of the NSW government have done nothing to stop them. Instead, they appear to have shut down active investigations, leaked confidential documents and helped irrigators find loopholes to abuse the rules.
We have a duty to protect our river so everyone who calls the basin home – the people, wildlife, farms, critters and cities – can thrive for generations to come.
The Murray-Darling Basin Plan sets out fair rules about how much river water people can take.
Will you sign the petition to demand Malcolm Turnbull stop the vested interests and make everyone follows the rules of the Basin Plan?
Prime Minister Turnbull, your party paved the way for a plan that would fairly represent the needs of the whole basin, from the biggest towns to the smallest critters. Now, we call on you to make sure the Basin Plan:
By signing this petition, you're showing your support for every town, turtle, farm, fisherman, red gum, retailer, critter and community who depend on a healthy basin.
Together, let's stand up for the plan that gives us all a fair go and keeps our river flowing for everyone – not just the ones with the deepest pockets.

This campaign is supported by the Lifeblood Alliance: a coalition of environment, Indigenous and community groups who are standing up for healthy rivers in the Murray-Darling Basin.
