The Stop Adani Convoy WA, a part of the Stop Adani Convoy through the eastern states, has now been welcomed at 10 towns across the eastern seaboard.

From Melbourne, we have travelled to Albury-Wodonga, Parramatta, Mullumbimby, Brisbane, Emu Park, Hervey Bay, Airlie Beach, Mackay and Clermont, where we faced our first and only pro-mining audience.

At Clermont, we were treated to the Karmoo Dreaming Water Protectors event, organised by the , whose lands and water are directly threatened by the Adani mine. 

Overall, the rallies have been incident free. However, at Clermont, an activist was trampled by a horse ridden by a local. Our friend was hospitalised, but is recovering. The horseman has been charged.

The Convoy has now headed south and at Toowoomba was treated to a special Stop Adani event hosted by Brown with the support of folk singer John Williamson.

We are now heading to Canberra for the final rally at Parliament House on May 5 where we will tell Adani and governments that coal mining and all fossil fuel mining are sunset industries in a time of human-induced climate change.
