#StopAdani Big Day of Action

Join us on October 7, in the #StopAdani Big Day of Action

The #StopAdani movement is uniting in a big day of action on Saturday, October 7. Join us!

Together, we’re building an unstoppable movement in our campaign to #StopAdani which our politicians are trying to ignore. Treasurer Scott Morrison thinks it’s funny to wave coal around in Parliament. Immigration Minister Peter Dutton cracks jokes about rising seas in the Pacific. Labor leader Bill Shorten says he “supports the Adani mine so long as it stacks up.”

If we want to move beyond coal, we’re going to have to spell out #StopAdani to our politicians. That's why we're asking you to join forces in creating human signs so big that they can’t be ignored, at iconic locations across Australia!

We’re literally going to spell out #StopAdani. Think big, think iconic, be creative and let’s make this massive!

Let’s show all sides of politics just how huge our movement is with thousands of people forming huge #StopAdani human signs at locations right across Australia on October 7.

How to join the #StopAdani Big Day of Action

Want to organise a #StopAdani human sign in your local neighbourhood, school, park, paddock, or beach? Follow these simple steps and send an unmissable message to our politicians that it's time to #StopAdani!

1. Plan your human sign

Find people who'd like to help and put a team together. Line up a great local location and check out this short guide: How to make a #StopAdani Human Sign.

2. Register your event

Register your event on our map above!

You'll need to create a Facebook event page or another web page that will allow you to promote your event and collect RSVPs. You'll put the link in our event form when you register with us, and we can then help promote your event!

3. Promote your event

Reach out to as many people as possible, asking them to come along and be involved!

Send emails, texts, contact other community groups in your area, talk to local businesses, promote your event at market and street stalls, put up posters and flyers, send a media release to your local paper, radio station and media outlets.

See our handy Community Resources page for great tips & tricks.

4. Make your #StopAdani human sign

Mark out the letters on the ground with tape and get people in formation for your photo. Think about props or colours that might make your human letters stand out. See our handy guide on how to make a human sign.

Organise one person to be responsible for taking high-quality photos of your human sign. Take some great photos and make a short video explaining why you and your group are taking action. Organise another person to be the media spokesperson, ready to talk to any journalists who might come and explain why you are taking action to #StopAdani.

5. Share your message widely!

Ask your photographer to share their best photos with local media and with your team, and all share them online using the #StopAdani hashtag. Also, ask them to send your best photos to us for more sharing!

Upload your photos and videos to Dropbox here and/or send any links and photos to photos@stopadani.com. When you upload your photo and/or video, include some details of who and where you are and why you want to #StopAdani. We’ll help to share your efforts with all the other #StopAdani human signs through lots of social media channels!

And DO share your activity via your social media channels and with your local media, politicians and decision makers. Check out our resources page for handy tips and tricks.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question that isn’t answered below, get in touch at info@stopadani.com.

Yes! Adani is struggling. The proposed Carmichael coal mine is a climate disaster that must never happen and right now, it’s vulnerable.

Adani can’t find a bank to back the project. It’s pinning its hopes for survival on a $1 billion taxpayer-funded loan from the Northern Australia Infrastructure Fund (NAIF). Both Federal and Queensland governments can veto NAIF spending.

That’s why it’s important to show the size and scope of the #StopAdani campaign - to keep the pressure on our politicians and publically show that the majority of Australian's do not support this new coal mine.

We're spelling it out: #StopAdani!

  1. Trashes Indigenous rights: Adani’s mine, rail and port project will destroy the ancestral lands, waters and cultures of Indigenous peoples in the region. Adani does not have the consent of the local Wangan and Jagalingou people.
  2. Coal kills: Coal is killing us and our planet. Pollution from burning coal is the single biggest contributor to dangerous global warming, threatening our way of life. Coal mining drains and pollutes our water supplies, harms our health and destroys our natural landscape.
  3. Can't trust Adani: Adani Group companies have an appalling record of environmental destruction and prosecutions overseas, including illegal dealings, bribery, environmental and social devastation and allegations of corruption, fraud and money laundering.
  4. Wrecks our climate: Just as we need to be cutting pollution, burning more coal will lead to more extreme weather and further bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef.
  5. Robs our water: Adani will draw billions of litres of water from the Great Artesian and other precious basins, for free, threatening our farmers and Australia's groundwater.
