With overwhelming support from the community, ACF challenged the federal government’s approval in court. Our national environment laws exist to protect our air, water and wildlife. They should be able to protect World Heritage sites like the reef.
The court found that under our current laws, Minister Hunt’s approval of Adani’s Carmichael coal mine will stand.
It’s madness that our government can legally approve the biggest coal mine in Australia's history when pollution is killing our reef.
So we are appealing the decision in court.
This isn’t over. We won’t give up until this mine is stopped once and for all.
Fifty years ago, the ACF community first came together to protect the reef from limestone and oil mining. Today, we can and will protect it from coal mining.
I choose our beautiful reef, not Adani's polluting Carmichael coal mine #reefnotcoal
