ALP locks down MP offices to avoid #StopAdani queue-ins
Bill Shorten, Annastasia Palaszczuk and Anthony Albanese have all locked down their electorate offices today, faced with long ‘queue-ins’ of constituents seeking meetings to discuss climate change and the Adani coal mine, as Shorten launches his Energy Policy.
Queue-ins today outside Shorten, Palaszczuk and Albanese’s offices are designed to be a physical reminder that voters are sick of waiting for the Labor Party to promise it will Stop Adani. Link to vision and photos here.
Long time Maribyrnong resident and #StopAdani Moonee Ponds spokesperson Angela Gill, who is at Bill Shorten’s electorate office this morning, said, “Shorten, Palaszczuk and Albanese have shut their electorate offices to avoid constituents who want to express their concerns that an energy policy without stopping Adani’s mine is like a pub with no beer.”
“Bill Shorten is running scared of voters in his own electorate who are concerned about accelerating climate change on the very day he launches ALP’s energy policy.
“Labor can’t avoid the #StopAdani movement which will keep highlighting the party’s failure to stop this climate-wrecking mine and move Australia beyond coal.
“Two thirds of Australians do not support Adani’s mine. Mr Shorten needs to listen to them and stop this destructive project for our climate, our water, Reef and future generations,”Ms Gill said.
