Stop Adani MelbourneTuesday, 30 April 2019 - 7:00pm
The Clyde Hotel, 385 Cardigan St, CarltonVictoria
We are hosting our second drop-in pub night next Tuesday for anyone interested in getting involved in the #StopAdani campaign.
Come along to The Clyde and have a beer and/or soda water with us (the #StopAdani Melbourne crew). We’ll be ready to answer any questions you have about the type of work we do as volunteers, and how the campaign is run (both in local groups and on the front lines).
If #StopAdani Melbourne isn’t your local group, don’t let that stop you - we can also help point you in the direction of a group closer to you.
Just look out for the #StopAdani-looking group at the front bar and come and say hi :)
About the Stop Adani campaign
What is the leading cause of climate change? The mining and burning of coal.
After enduring a summer of intense heat waves, bushfires, drought, floods and storms, Australians are increasingly aware of the threat global warming poses to our way of life.
If the Adani Group gets its way, it will dig the biggest coal mine in Australia's history. The Adani mine - planned to be built inland of the Great Barrier Reef - would be one of the biggest coal mines in the world.
If built, Adani’s mine, rail and port project will:
- Destroy the ancestral lands, waters and cultures of Indigenous people without their consent.
- Allow 500 more coal ships to travel through the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area every year for 60 years.
- Get access to 270 billion litres of Queensland's precious groundwater for 60 years, for free.
- Risk damaging aquifers of the Great Artesian Basin.
- Add 4.6 billion tonnes of carbon pollution to our atmosphere.
Critically, if allowed to go ahead, Adani’s Carmichael coal mine will unlock the Galilee Basin - one of the world's largest untapped coal deposits - paving the way for at least eight more coal mines to be built. All in a time when the world knows it must be walking away from coal and investing in clean energy.
We must stop this mine. How will we do it? With the support and actions of millions of Australians like you, doing what it takes to say #StopAdani and stop this mine.
