The Labor Party is still tying themselves in knots about Adani. They need to hear from us encouraging them to reject this polluting coal mine.

This is Labor’s Franklin River moment. This decision will go down in Australian environmental history. The ALP are so close, but we need to get them over the line.

Give them the courage and confidence to make the right decision!

Will you call one – or many! – of these key people in Labor's Cabinet and encourage them to make a clear public statement opposing this dangerous mine?

  • When you call, you might speak to a staffer. Ask them to leave a message for the Shadow Minister. If you can't get through, keep trying!

Jason Clare`s electoral office (Bankstown). Said it would be very difficult to vote Labor if they still support Adani up to the election, and that they need to reject coal industry donations. Was assured my message would be passed on to Jason`s advisers

I rang Mark Butler. I spoke to staffer, expressed my disappointment that labor seem to be prevaricating about this mine. I advised that I was against this toxic mine, which would be a risk for Barrier reef, have a huge impact on climate change, and a risk to Great Artesian Basin etc.
The staffer advised that Mark Butler is a strong opponent of this mine. Lets hope other cabinet members start to listen to him!

Tanya Pilbersek. asked staffer to pass on that i would like a clear statement from labour against the mine. that scientists tell us 88% of fossil fuel needs to stay in the ground and coal is the low hanging fruit, we can easily move away from coal as a source of power.

Sharon Claydon is always appreciative of our contact.

Tried to contact Ged Kearney’s campaign team on 0467 018 241; couldn’t leave a message as “this message bank is full”. :-(
Contacted Bill Shorten’s Melbourne Office with the message that Ged Kearney has at least a slim hope in Batman if Labor were to categorically repudiate the Adani coal mine
Richard 2018-02-22 09:46:40 +1100
Called Tanya Plibersek’s office. Said I am convinced by all the evidence that the corrupt Adani not sustainable and a complete disaster for Australia and its workers seeking stable jobs. Received sympathetically, I was assured it would be passed on.

Tanya Plibersek and said Iam totaly totaly opposed to the Adani mine, and the destruction of our country, we must look after our mother country, being a woman I hope Tanya understands this.
Jenniffer 2018-02-22 09:26:41 +1100
The only way support for Adani makes any sense is if they are on the take. You need to call them out on this.
Steve 2018-02-22 09:25:23 +1100
I know it will be hard to wean your Party off coal money, but the time is ripe. We need decisive strong leadership to save this planet. It is not about coal miners or coal companies. This about the Reef ad humanity.

Thanks ACF

Just called 5 shadow ministers – including leader’s office – all very friendly and giving message that they have had a lot of calls- and that the opposition to the mine is being taken very seriously – and that an alternative plan for the (Adani) region is in the pipeworks. Thanks to ACF for this great initiative

2018 Febr 6th: about 9:35 am.
I spoke to a staffer (Clare) in Shayne Neumann’s Canberra office. He is my federal member [Blair]. I politely advised that I am opposed to the Adani mine and that I wanted Shayne’s shadow cabinet colleagues to come out with something definite about stopping the Adani mine.
As background I said that it’s been about 30 years since the United Nations declared global warming a serious problem, and that 30 years is a very, very long time. We need action on (human induced) climate change urgently.
I gave Clare my full name and address.
John 2018-02-06 11:06:45 +1100
Called Bill Shorten’s office and Mark Butler’s office as well as having physically visited my local federal member’s (Tony Zappia) on a couple of previous occasions re. this issue. Although having only managed to speak to staffers when making phone calls this morning, am feeling far more encouraged by their present response regarding this Adani issue than I was a few months ago when having raised my same concerns with Mr. Zappia who at that time was following the standard party line by saying that this filthy project would at least create a number of jobs. I told him then and continue to do so, that I will never give my vote or any support whatsoever, to any party who supports the Adani project in any shape or form. I will continue to make further calls to other Labour MPs on the list you have provided.
Mick 2018-02-06 09:45:41 +1100
Hi Folks, I just went through the list of shadow cabinet members and left messages with all the staffers. It was really quick and easy, staffers were polite and all said they had recieved a lot of calls about this. Thanks ACF for running this campaign!

I made the call to Bill Shorten’s Maribyrnong office. There was no one there so I left a message on his answering machine. I politely said that I am with the ACF and that I don’t want the Adani mine to go ahead and that I really take it very seriously.

tanya Plibersek and i spoke to an assistant by the name of Cain and her was very able. He quoted back to me, Labour’s attitude and opinion on the Adani coalmine saying Labour knows it doesn’t stack up on any counts and also means we will not be able to abide by our Paris agreement. they are not voting on it today. cain said he had had several calls and they were making a list of people who had voiced their concerns. all good!
Victoria 2018-02-02 14:48:15 +1100
I called everyone on the list. The Shane Neumann call went to an answering machine and I didn’t leave a message. All others said they would pass on the message, some said that they’d had hundreds of calls. Encouragingly, many staffers support our views. Mark Butlers staffer said he’s been very vocal, both inside and outside the party, of his opposition to the Adani mine.
Marion 2018-02-02 14:43:57 +1100
Bill Shorten’s office. A brief call, politely received. He said “you are not alone in this”, so he must have received a lot of calls already
