Reef Defenders – from Pit to Port

Juru and Birri Traditional Owners, whose lands are covered by Adani’s planned projects, have traveled with Reef town locals down to Brisbane, to visit Adani’s HQ. They are delivering pledges from 1000s of Australians, who have all pledged to take part in peaceful civil disobedience to stop the Galilee Basin mega coal mines.

Pledge to become a Reef Defender and participate in dignified, peaceful civil disobedience to protect the Great Barrier Reef and the climate by stopping the financing and construction of Abbot Point coal port and the associated rail and coal mines in the Galilee Basin. It’s time to show our leaders that we won’t accept the fossil fuel industry trampling the rights, safety and future of all Australians.

Adani mining company receives more than 2,000 handwritten protest letters

The Adani mining company received more than 2,000 handwritten messages this morning in opposition to its plans for coal mining projects in Queensland.

In coordination with the messages, more than 150 protesters briefly occupied the steps to the Indian company’s Brisbane CBD office to speak out against the projects planned for the Galilee Basin and Abbot Point.

The messages were delivered by Aboriginal elder Carol Prior who says peaceful protest is the most effective way for the message to get across.

“Rather than going in screaming and yelling it’s best to sit down and talk in a civil tone and act like human beings,” says Prior. She added that the mines would devastate the environment and destroy sacred Indigenous sites.
