A Message from CAN West – Stop Adani

Please join us in the Day of Action against the proposed Adani coal mine in Queensland on Oct 7th on the beach at Burnie (outside Fish Frenzy) @10.30am, mobilised by 350.org. More details will be placed on the CAN West Facebook page, or information via Anton or Caroline. Please spread this message through your networks.
350.org says:
We are deadly serious about stopping Adani’s proposed coal mine and moving Australia beyond fossil fuels. The Adani mine is a mistake for Australia. It’s a disaster for our climate, Indigenous rights, human health, water resources and the Great Barrier Reef. So far the #StopAdani Alliance has challenged the mine in court, campaigned for banks not to invest in the project and raised public awareness of the dangers the mine poses. Across Australia, communities have come together to say #StopAdani at a roadshow, movie screenings, targeted events and bank branches to ensure this project doesn’t go ahead.

We’re at a crucial point. We now need to increase the visibility of the widespread community opposition, pressuring the Federal Government not lend $1bn of taxpayer money to Adani via the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF). Adani’s coal project has been rejected by 24 banks internationally. The company needs NAIF money to go ahead. That’s why your participation is so vital on October 7 at the #StopAdani Big Day of Action.

On October 7 we are asking communities across Australia to come together to form giant human signs spelling out Stop Adani or take action in your community to send the #StopAdani message. Hope to see you there!

There is a wealth of knowledge out there so please come and share your thoughts and knowledge.

We will be looking for people who may be able to help in the planning over the coming months, plus those who are happy to help on the day.

If we can tap into our amazing networks we should be able to create a festival that has the potential of spreading environmental awareness throughout our local communities long after the event is
