Adani recently announced they are in the final few weeks of securing funding for their massively scaled-back project. Groups across the country are joining in to stop Adani's mega coalmine in a fortnight of heat with actions taking place across the country including queue-ins at our representatives offices'. We're inviting everyone from across the ACT, including all five new and established #StopAdani suburban groups in a show of power to ask Senator David Smith to take action on Adani and get Labor off the fence. The mine doesn't stack up economically, socially or environmentally and Labor need to oppose the mine outright instead of continuing to passively support the project. We'll queue-in this Thursday at David Smith's office to speak with his staffers about why we're passionate about protecting our climate, and show him where his constituents stand. Bring along a letter to Senator Smith, or a pen to write one with a template or from scratch. See you there!

The list of companies walking away from Adani’s toxic brand and climate-wrecking mega mine keeps growing. 59 companies, including 16 major insurers, have now ruled out working with Adani.
But Lloyd’s of London is still working with Adani to help the mining giant find insurance for its disastrous project.
Let’s flood the Lloyd’s office with calls now and let them know that allowing insurers to underwrite Adani’s coal mine is a risk we cannot afford!
Adani can’t build or operate their destructive coal mine and rail line without insurance.
A staff insider from US insurance giant AIG has confirmed AIG is insuring part of Adani’s mine project. Now is the time to tell AIG to insure our future, and not to renew insurance for Adani’s destructive coal mine.
On September 20, three days before the UN Emergency Climate Summit, the #StopAdani movement is stepping up to join the Global #ClimateStrike led by young people from the School Strike 4 Climate movement.
