As bushfires rage across the country, the Queensland government is considering a secret deal with Adani that could mean the coal corporation pockets hundreds of millions of dollars of public money for its climate-wrecking mine.

Analysis by The Australia Institute shows Adani’s special coal royalty deal could be worth between $250 and $700 million dollars. The Palaszczuk Government has refused to reveal the terms of this shady arrangement, claiming it’s too confidential for us to know about.

Our elected representatives have a responsibility to create a future where our communities, reef and wildlife thrive, not prop up dirty coal.
Add your name to this open letter to send the Premier a clear message — no dirty royalty deal for Adani:

“Dear Premier,

During the last Queensland election you promised there would be no public money for Adani’s climate-wrecking coal mine.

If Adani’s mine goes ahead it would unleash billions of tonnes of pollution, at a time when we must rapidly phase out coal and take urgent action on the climate crisis.

We ask you to keep your election promise and not cut a special royalty deal with Adani.”

Adani should never be allowed to operate in Australia. The only mines we should have should be Australian owned and operated for the benefit of Australian people.

Adani should never have been considered in the first place he is a criminal in his own country and if coal must be mined (and it shouldn’t !) Then it should profit Australia not some foreign billionaire

Our politicians really need to step up and protect our land and people, and stop giving sweetheart deals to miners, or any corporations that damage us. Please Premier, do this.

Please please don’t let this go ahead. Think 10, 20, 100 or 500 years into the future. This isn’t about us here and now. It’s for every Queenslander that follows in our footsteps.

This has been going on for so long! Why don’t you have a round table discussion , and suggest very politely that they bugger off.

Adani and any other new coal mine are crimes against humanity and nature!
