Climate change and #StopAdani are headline issues this federal election. The brand new group #StopAdani Higgins is launching at this meet up - just in time to get out talking to people in our community about stopping Adani in the lead up to the May 18th election.
This is a meet up for anyone interested in taking action to #StopAdani in the Higgins area (South Yarra - Malvern - Glen Iris - Ashburton). We'll get to know each other, hear a short update on the #StopAdani campaign and make plans to build the movement in our community. Together we'll kick off #StopAdani Higgins - woohoo!
Following this meeting is the Oxfam Higgins Candidate Forum: Australia's Role in Poverty and Climate Change at 7.30pm. The meeting will wrap up at 7pm so that anyone who wants to can go on to the forum together.
A venue for this meet up will be confirmed once we have a better sense of numbers - we'll be in touch to let you know by Monday 29th April at the latest. It will be near the Oxfam forum venue which is South Yarra Community Baptist Church, 12 Surrey Road.
We hope to see you there! Any questions please get in touch.

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.
