The #StopAdani Roadshow attracted thousands of supporters across the country, who oppose the federal and Queensland government’s support for Adani’s $22 billion Carmichael coal mine in central Queensland.
About 1200 people in Brisbane on March 28 and 1000 in Sydney the next day heard from Indian environment campaigner Dr Vaishali Patil, Californian Clean Energy Fund director Danny Kennedy, SEED co-director Millie Telford and 350.org CEO Blair Palese.
The mood at the Sydney meeting was upbeat; people agreed to take the message to their universities, communities and workplaces. The next campaign focus is to get WestPac to divest. Final approvals for the mine are due in May, with Adani wanting to start digging in August.
