On October 6th, UWA will be participating in the lead up to Australia's Day of Action to #StopAdani! The federal government is currently considering giving a $1billion loan of taxpayer money to the Adani company’s dangerous coal mine. This project would destroy the Great Barrier Reef and wreck the climate, and does not have the consent of the Wangan & Jagalingou people, the traditional owners of the land. To stop this from going ahead, we need to stand as one against, to get the pollies to pay attention.
We'll be joining thousands of Australians nation wide, making the words "STOP ADANI" on the Lawn outside of Reid, taking a photo and spreading the #StopAdani message across social media. So come and join in, and help us take a stand against the Adani coal mine.
WHO: Everyone fired up to #StopAdani - no matter where you're from! This event is run and supported by Doctors for the Environment Australia, Code Green and Fossil Free UWA, but everyone is welcome!
BRING: Friends, peers, acquiantances [everyone!!!!] and any signs or posters [we'll provide some too!!]
WEAR: Red - the #StopAdani colour!
WHEN: Friday 6th October, 12pm

The Adani Group wants to rebrand itself as a leader on climate change and clean energy. But there’s a big problem - Adani are mining, handling, and burning record volumes of coal - the number one driver of the climate crisis.
