URGENT: One billion dollars in public funding could be used to prop up Adani's giant polluting coal mine!
PM Malcolm Turnbull appears to be preparing to give multinational mining company Adani $1 billion of public money to fund a coal-carting railway line from the Galilee Basin to the Great Barrier Reef coast.
Media reports say the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF) funds are earmarked for the project.
During the election, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said – on camera – that there would be no public funding for Adani's mine.
We are holding him to that promise. And we don’t want this mega-polluting coal mine.
Billionaire polluter Gautam Adani has met the Prime Minister recently.
When Mr Adani puts on the hard word, we need Malcolm Turnbull to know – we won't accept giving a billion dollars of public funding to a billionaire's company creating billions of tonnes of pollution.
Mr Adani has a mining licence, but he has no social licence.
Sign the petition calling on Malcolm Turnbull to put Adani's requests for publicly-funded subsidies in the bin.
Together, let's call for our money to be invested in clean energy, not wrecking the Great Barrier Reef.
Prime Minister Turnbull, during the election you said there would be no public funding for Adani. Adani's Reef-killing coal mine is not public infrastructure. Don’t waste public money on it.
I’m an Indian and I don’t want Adani’s venture to succeed. This company pollutes the environment, terrifies the locals and corrupts the politicians to get these done. A horrible example if corporate governance and transparency, they must be stopped. Best wishes to my friends in Australia, save your land and water, ours is being polluted by Adani as I speak.
We are nature so why are we destroying ourself?
It truly is astonishing what these people are allowed to do!
Adani is one of the richest billionaires in India and the 4th most powerful. My friends in India cannot believe Australians are so stupid as to give this billionaire 1.2 billon for infrastructure for his mine which will come out of our Health, Education, Welfare, Infrastructure etc. Braindead Australians need to wake up, protest, phone their MPs and take a stand against this ludicrous selling off of Australia.
Do not give this company that money put it towards our local railway systems.
Grow up Malcolm ? Start Representing the people . Don’t loan money that doesn’t belong to you unless it’s for wind solar or sea for power? Thank you. NO MORE COAL MINING IN AUSTRALIA ! ! THANKS MATE
We say no to greedy corporations (local or foreign) causing irreversible damage to our country and our planet. We say no to our elected leaders giving money to these greedy people, which could be better spent within our own economy to the betterment of AUSTRALIA.
WE ARE THE SOVEREIGNS OF THE COMMON- WEALTH
Keep his dirty hands off Australia.
I sincerely wish anyone evil enough to help destroy the Great Barrier Reef, which does not belong to ANY OF YOU GREEDY SODS, rots in the deepest pits of hell forever. DON’T DO IT!!!!
When a company has overseas bank accounts in tax havens. Charges for corruption for not paying back investors and banks. It’s no wonder that no bank in India or Australia will give them a loan. Doesn’t take a genius to figure out its a stupid idea for the Australian government to give them 1 billion dollars.
They won’t pay Tax just like all Multinationals. Complient gutless politicians on both sides of the house .no conscience.
Time to end the madness of governments in bed with billionaires and big business. This is not what people want and we did not vote them in so they could screw up our environment and add to climate change, all so they can make their mates even richer. We need to get rid of these b*st*rds and replace them with genuine leaders who want to make the world a better place. We need a Bernie Sanders!!!
