Two weeks ago, news broke that Adani has allegedly illegally drilled water bores on the proposed mine site, risking our precious groundwater. In the same week, the federal government have allowed Adani to extract 12.5 billion litres a year without a full environmental assessment. Adani have also announced their new plan to build a cheaper, shorter railway to connect the mine to the port.

Adani are deadly serious about getting this mine off the ground, and they’re closer than ever.

It’s time for the vibrant #StopAdani community to come out in force and show its people power – street by street. Join us on the first weekend of October for the National Doorknock to #StopAdani!

We can stop Adani street by street through the power of a genuine, personal conversation. Our strategy is to talk to people on their doorsteps in key electorates — important places for us to demonstrate that people will vote for parties that will #StopAdani.

If you’re reading this thinking it makes sense but it’s not for you, I know exactly how you feel – because a few years ago I was in your shoes too. I was nervous when I signed up to my first doorknock, but I'm so glad I did! I met heaps of other nervous newbies who were challenging themselves to do what needs to be done even if it seems scary.

And when I started speaking to people on their doorsteps I realised just how many people out there care too, and that gave me hope.

So even if you’re feeling a bit nervous, join us!

We’ll make sure you have all the materials, training and team support you need to have a fun day making a difference.

Together we can stop Adani.
