Stand in Solidarity

The Wangan and Jagalingou are the Traditional Owners of the land where Adani’s coal mine is under construction. They are calling on people to stand in solidarity with their call for the Queensland Government to respect their human rights.

In 2022 - the Wangan and Jagalingou Cultural Custodians celebrated 1 year of their ceremony 'Waddananggu' - which translates to 'the talking' in Wirdi language. The Wangan and Jagalingou Cultural Custodians continue to reoccupy their lands and fight to get their Country back at the edge of Adani’s Carmichael mine.

Since the 26th August 2021, there has been a Wangan and Jagalingou Cultural Custodian in the ceremonial bora ring next to the Adani coal mine at all times, even on blistering hot days and cold stormy nights.

Our ongoing presence means Wangan and Jagalingou Cultural Custodians can care for their ancestral homelands, monitor damage and destruction on their Country, and hold those who harm their lands and waters to account.

Waddananggu started because the protection of the land, air, animals and sacred springs are more important than Adani’s destruction of the environment and cultural heritage for coal mining. However it has become much more!

Waddananggu has become a community hub for mob to learn and share in the culture – providing a safe space for at-risk young people to learn new skills and reconnect with their culture. It is also a place for allies to experience what land rights and sovereignty for Wangan and Jagalingou people really means.
