Adani Toxic Tours
Adani can't build their mine alone. Without a plethora of contractors, constructing, insuring, hauling and basically building the whole mine, Adani could not go ahead.
Luckily, our movement is good at getting contractors to drop out, already 61 contractors have decided not to work with Adani. Even Scott Morrison says we're winning, which is why he wants to ban secondary boycotts, aka our campaign to push companies to rule out working with Adani.
Right in the heart of Brisbane there are a bunch of companies who are working with Adani and are already feeling the pressure of our movement but we need to keep it up.
Join the the Adani Toxic Tour and visit four key companies working with Adani. We will be visiting four companies, hearing about the work they are doing with Adani and talking to staff as they enter for work and at lunchtime.
8:00am - Meet at 145 Ann st, Origin & GHD
8:30 - AIG, 120 Edward st
9:00 - Marsh, 111 Eagle st
Catch the train to the Valley & have morning tea!
12:00 - Aurizon 900 Ann st Fortitude Valley
12:45 - Marsh, 27 Evelyn Street
This is a fun event with a short walk between the offices. We want to get the attention of the contractors' staff in particular. We can make noise, sing songs, chat with people passing.
Join us to visit as many of these offices as you can.

- Many GHD staff are telling people at actions outside GHD offices that GHD is no longer working with Adani and won't in the future. If this is true, then we are on the cusp of victory!
