#StopAdani: A Mighty Force
This 30 minute documentary tells the story of the movement to stop what would be one of the world’s biggest coal mines and to protect the Great Barrier Reef.

From remote central Queensland where the mine is proposed to be built, to rallies in metropolitan Melbourne and Sydney, this David and Goliath battle is one of the most determined and focused campaigns in Australia’s recent history.

While we've won some mighty victories, our campaign is far from over. One thing is certain: the people are united to stop Adani.

As Juru Traditional elder Carol Prior says in the film, “Adani are dealing with a mighty force, and the more it grows, the harder we’ll be to beat.”
