Keep The Scenic Rim Scenic will be providing a "mini-Galilee Basin coal mine” at this years Arts in The Olives Festival for the kids to play in and for parents to learn more about the proposed Adani mine. This is a true "learning through play" environment, where the serious issue of inappropriate coal mining is highlighted in the sandpit. Kids will leave small handprints and footprints in the sand, unlike the enormous environmental footprint that Adani plans to leave with their development. Kids are able to blissfully play knowing that the adults have got their future protected … or is it? Are we doing as much as we can to protect the earth they will inherit?
The sandpit will highlight the free and unlimited water the Qld State Govt has promised to Adani for the next 60 years, as well as the $1 billion coming from Federal Funds for a railway link.
Attention will also be given to the Commonwealth Bank – disappointingly, they are the only one of Australia’s big four banks still considering to fund Adani.
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.
