What is the issue?

Right now, 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 the megamine would generate billions of tonnes of pollution, fuel global warming and irreversibly damage our Great Barrier Reef.

The reef is one of the most incredible places on Earth, home to fish, corals, turtles, whales, dolphins, sharks and rays. But it's in grave danger. 

Any day now, our federal government could hand over a $1billion of public money to Adani for a coal-carting railway from the Galilee Basin to the Great Barrier Reef. But our public money is not a slush fund for a dodgy company's climate-wrecking project with a dead end future.

It’s a disgrace. And we won’t stand for it.

Already, millions of people right across Australia have stepped up to stop Adani’s dangerous mine. Over a million people like you signed the petition to tell Turnbull we say no to a $1billion handout to Adani. Thousands of us came together for the #StopAdani roadshow and hundreds are now running local groups and events to pressure their elected representatives. This is one of the biggest campaigns in our history. 

Together, we'll #StopAdani and say #NoMoreCoal.

Together we can #StopAdani

Thousands of determined people have been flooding MP offices with calls, letters and emails, meeting with their MPs and rallying outside offices to send a clear message to our elected representatives: no public money for Adani’s mega polluting coal mine.

The pressure is working. A growing number of MPs are speaking out and the Turnbull Government is feeling the heat. If we can get more and more of our elected representatives to speak out up and say they don’t support Adani’s mine, or giving them a billion dollars – we can stop this mine in its tracks.

Here’s how you can get involved:

Sign the petition to Minister for Environment and Energy Josh Frydenberg telling him to reject Adani's coal mine and create strong new laws to protect nature and wildlife.

Host a screening of Guarding the Galilee to get your local community informed and fired up about stopping Adani. If you want to start a local group, a film screening is a great way to bring people together and inspire them to get involved.


Prime Minister Turnbull, choose our beautiful reef, not Adani's mega-polluting coal mine #reefnotcoal #stopadani @TurnbullMalcolm
