Newcastle Screening: People power vs Adani - The Fight Of Our Times
Come to the Newcastle premiere screening of People power vs Adani - the fight of our times.
In August 2010 billionaire mining giant Adani bought a licence to dig the biggest coal mine in Australia’s history, in central Queensland on the land of the Wangan and Jagalingou people. Adani planned to start shipping coal out through the Great Barrier Reef in 2014 and burn it in their Indian power plants. 10 years later Adani are yet to dig a single lump of Australian coal.
What’s been stopping Adani? People power!
People power vs Adani - the fight of our times features interviews with Wangan & Jagalingou cultural leader Adrian Burragubba, school striker Manjot Kaur, and grassroots leaders from across the #StopAdani movement. The film explores what people power has achieved in stopping Adani so far, how we can stop Adani from here, and why winning this fight is more important now than ever before.
All proceeds from the film will be donated to the Wangan & Jagalingou Family Council to support their ongoing resistance to Adani.
