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.”

It’s simple. Australia is on fire. The climate crisis is dire. No royalty deal for Adani.

If a company accepts a job it accepts that jobs morality and consequence. The consequence of Adani is run away climate change and destruction of previous habitat and biodiversity. Does your company want to be responsible for that outcome? If so your company will be judged for that decision.

queenslanders expect a labor government to keep to their election promises to prevent climate-wrecking coal mining and to spend our taxes on reversing the conditions for drought and bushfires.

Why should I pay tax while a huge coal corporation gets away with taking my money instead of paying our country to extort our resources? Stop giving our country resources and money away to foreign companies!
