Greens call for Straddie mining ban
This follows a state government deal to extend mining until 2027 on already expired leases at the island's largest mine.
Greens lead Senate candidate for Queensland Larissa Waters explains the issue in the media:
- ABC News video
- AAP photos of Larissa flying over Stradbroke Island, and sand mining
- Brisbane Times article

The Queensland Greens have also made a public submission into the Queensland Goverment's Vision for North Stradbroke community feedback process.
