Polling released this week confirms what we already all knew- the majority of Australians don’t want Adani's mine. We want a healthy, living Reef, and we want a safe climate. Before the last election, the Queensland Government said that Adani must show their project is viable without Government support. The Premier made an election commitment that ‘no taxpayer money would be given to build a rail line for a private commercial project. BUT, the Federal Government's NAIF slush fund is gearing up to give $1 billion of taxpayer funding to Adani to build the railway between their destructive mine and the Great Barrier Reef. So, it's time to show the QLD Government that their re-election depends on them upholding their promise and saying no to any public funding for Adani's disastrous project, and committing to rapidly moving away from dirty, destructive fossil fuels and investing in clean renewable energy.

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.
