Adani has allegedly broken the law by drilling into aquifers on their mine site. Join us in Brisbane for a snap action outside Adani's headquarters.
As exposed by the ABC, drone footage appears to show that Adani has drilled six groundwater bores on the site of the Carmichael coal mine, even though their water plans have not been approved by the Queensland state government.
This is outrageous.
While 57% of Queensland is in drought, Adani is allegedly drilling into precious aquifers, before receiving important approvals designed to protect groundwater and endangered plants and wildlife.
Last year, Adani were fined for dumping polluted coal water into the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. And after sustained public pressure, last week the Queensland government announced they will prosecute Adani for this damage.This is a huge win! It shows that when we speak out together, we are powerful.
They’re allegedly drilling on Wangan & Jagalingou Country without consent from the Traditional Owners.
Now we need to push the Premier and the Environment Minister to protect our water, the lifeblood that sustains our dry, brown country.
Join us at a colourful snap community action at Adani headquarters at 10:30am this Thursday! Wear red and black, bring placards, your voice, and your friends!
