What is the issue?
Right now, Indian company Adani is itching to dig one of the biggest coal mines in the world in Queensland’s Galilee Basin. If it goes ahead, burning coal from Adani’s massive Carmichael mine would create billions of tonnes of pollution, make climate change worse and irreversibly damage the Great Barrier Reef.
The Reef is one of the most magnificent places on Earth, home to an amazing diversity of fish, corals, turtles, whales, dolphins, sharks and rays.
Before June, the government could handover a $1billion of public money to Adani for their giant polluting megamine. That’s a $1 billion of our hard-earned public funds to a dodgy company for a climate-wrecking project with a dead end future.
It’s a disgrace. And we won’t stand for it.
Already millions of people have taken action to stop Adani’s dangerous mine. Over a million of you signed the petition to tell Turnbull no to a $1 billion handout to Adani. Thousands of you turned up to the #StopAdani roadshow. And hundreds of you are forming local groups determined to stop this mine all over the country.
Now, we’re turning up the heat!
