Move Beyond Coal, Sydney Knitting Nannas and Friends, Extinction Rebellion and others protested outside Whitehaven Coal’s annual general meeting on October 26, telling investors and shareholders not to fuel the climate crisis.

Whitehaven Coal is one of Australia’s largest coal companies. Despite the climate emergency, it plans to spend $4 billion on new and expanded coal mines to double its production by 2030 with four major new coal projects threatening the climate, First Nations cultural heritage, waterways and farmland.
