Captured State is a breaking report that exposes the influence of the gas lobby on Western Australian (W.A.) politics, with some key new findings. 350 Perth’s new campaign is using these findings and the recommendations from the report to try to strengthen WA’s democracy from the insidious influence of the fossil fuel industry.
As part of this campaign we are looking for people to get involved in discussing the report and its 6 recommendations with their local Members of Parliament.
The Report explores the revolving door between the gas industry and WA politics; it compares meeting dates between fossil fuel companies and the government, with political donation dates; it maps political donations made by the biggest polluters in the state over the last decade; it shows the amount of emissions each project creates vs the amount they are supposed to offset vs the amount they actually offset.

350 Boorloo Perth has created a survey to gauge the level of concern WA constituents have about the influence of the gas industry over WA politics.
From fracking to the influence of corporate political donations, it’s important for us to collate data about peoples’ perceptions of these issues, in order to show our newly elected representatives that there is a high level of community support for addressing these problems.
The survey is anonymous and only five questions long; take a few minutes to fill it out here:
