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
WHERE: Reid Lawn, UWA (look for red shirts and Stop Adani signs!)

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.
