Anti-Adani march in Yeppoon

Protesters in central Queensland opposing the Adani coal mine.

More than 100 people joined a peaceful march, organised by 350 Central Queensland, in Yeppoon on November 18.

The march aimed to send politicians and candidates a strong message to start listening to the people and stop “this climate wrecking mega-mine” from taking shape.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palszczuk has announced she would veto the $1 billion NAIF loan to build the railway line to Adani’s Carmichael coal mine and the rally called on the LNP to do the same.

350CQ volunteer Thomas Henderson said: “Recent polling shows that three quarters of Australians do not want this loan to go ahead and think that Adani should fund their own infrastructure.

“The Australian public understands how crazy it is to be using public money to support a project that Traditional Owners oppose. It’s time our politicians and candidates understand and listen to the people and veto the loan.”
