#StopAdani movement delivers big piles of coal to doorstep of Adani’s potential rail partners in Sydney and Brisbane
Colourful and very noisy crowds outside gathered at the Headquarters of Australia’s biggest coal haulage companies, Aurizon and Pacific National, calling on them to rule out hauling coal for Adani’s Carmichael coal mine.
Queensland spokesperson, Dermot Dorgan, #StopAdani The Gap said, “With Genesee and Wyoming recently ruling out hauling Adani’s coal, two companies remain: Aurizon and Pacific National.
“More than 60 major companies globally have already said no to supporting Adani’s project because of climate impacts and the associated business risks. We’re urging Aurizon and Pacific National to do the same,” Mr Dorgan said.
Sydney spokesperson, Vicky Tzioumis, #StopAdani North Sydney said, “Companies like Pacific National that choose to associate with Adani’s controversial brand endanger their reputation and social license.
“Adani’s mine, rail and port project is a risky financial bet. Adani has shortchanged major engineering companies for tens of millions of dollars and experts say Adani is a “corporate collapse waiting to happen”.
“Australia is already grappling with early bushfires and devastating droughts. Burning coal is the biggest driver of climate change. Aurizon and Pacific National must stand on the right side of history and rule out hauling Adani’s coal,” Ms Tzioumis said.
