Add a comment and tell us how your call went

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? 

Calling tips

  • 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!
  • Be polite and encouraging – we want them to make a good decision!
  • Talk about why you care about this 
  • Be specific – ask them to make a clear public statement opposing Adani's mine

Tanyas office have been inundated with calls. I made it crystal clear that none of us here in Australia besides corrupt businessmen and corrupt politicians support Adani in any way shape or form and that Adani are not welcome anywhere in Australia. She said Tanya feels strongly against the mine if it ’doesn’t stack up’ which of course they will find a way to make it ‘stack up environmentally’

Bill Shorten’s office. I told them that I would like to encourage them to stand firm against the go ahead for Adani Coal Mine as it would be an environmental catastrophe. I said that I was one among many Australian citizens that would support Labour’s decision to oppose the Adani Coal mine.

Called Tanya Plibersek’s office and spoke to Christine who was very polite, said there had been a number of calls and Labor’s policy on the Adani mine remained the same. When I said that I didn’t think there was anything left to ‘stack’ with this issue, she agreed.
Couldn’t get through to Bill Shorten’s office.

Mark Butler/Tony Burke: No response. Dialled out.

Called bill shorten and Tania Plibersek will call the rest asap, both said they were keeping track of who was calling and would pass the tally on, but was reassured that they weren’t considering it by Tania’s office but a large number of calls from the general public could push the final decision to a definite NO from other areas aswell. public outcry can make a change
