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.
