  • Rally to stop Adani's India forest destruction 5 rsvps

    Saturday, June 15, 2019 at 11:00 AM
    3-5 Moonah Pl, Yarralumla ACT 2600, Australia

    Gautam Adani is pushing Australia’s governments to open up his massive coal lode in the Galilee basin in this age of climate emergency.

    This Saturday 15 June we are rallying in Canberra at the Indian High Commission. In Sydney you can also join a peaceful demonstration in solidarity.

    Our peaceful demonstrations will highlight the Adani companies’ appalling record of environmental destruction and corruption overseas. Adani should be stopped from destroying the Gond forests of India and the woodlands of the Galilee Basin in Australia.

    India’s Ministry for Environment has given environmental clearance for open cast coal mining inside the dense Hasdeo Arand forests.

    The Parsa coal mine will be operated by Rajasthan Collieries Limited (RCL). Adani has 74% ownership of Rajasthan Collieries.

    Chhattisgarh state’s Hasdeo Arand region is home to forest-dwelling Adivasi (indigenous) communities, such as the Gonds, who are deeply dependent on forest produce, and agriculture. The region has dense sal forests, rare plants, perennial water sources, and wildlife species including elephants, sloth bears and leopards.

    Bring placards and banners.

  • Stop Adani Convoy – Brisbane Rally

    Monday, April 22, 2019 at 01:00 PM
    Queens Gardens in Brisbane, Australia

    Rally against Adani's mega coal mine with the Stop Adani Convoy in Brisbane.

    Come down to join the #StopAdani convoy as we rally in Queens Gardens and march to Adani's Headquarters - to let our politicians know we will vote Adani out.

    Now is the time to send a clear message that the people of Brisbane want action on climate change and that starts with stopping Adani’s mega coal mine.

    WHEN: Monday 22nd of April, 1-2pm

    WHERE: Rally at Queens Gardens (corner of George and Elizabeth Streets, Brisbane) and March to Adani Headquarters at 10 Eagle st

    WHAT: Hear from Bob Brown, School Striker Sara McKoy, Geoff Cousins and Sailoto Liveti Pacific Climate Warrior from Tuvalu. March to Adani's HQ to send a clear message, Australia wants to #StopAdani.

    Our politics have been in the pockets of mining companies too long, with the LNP's dodgy rush through of Adani's water approvals, we need to make sure that this election, Australians will vote Adani out.

    Driving from Hobart to the Galilee Basin, the convoy will be ramping up pressure on MP’s across Australia, calling on them to #StopAdani and remind voters of everyone’s obligation to keep this planet habitable.

    The #StopAdani Convoy, led by Bob Brown, is a convoy of concerned community members from across Australia driving from Hobart to Adani’s mine site in the Galilee Basin north Queensland, then back down to Canberra for a final rally before the Federal election. Rallies are being held along the East Coast, with big rallied planned for Hobart, Melbourne and Sydney, before reaching Brisbane on April 22.

    Friday, April 05, 2019 at 06:30 PM
    Turnstlye Community Hub, 10 Laura St, Highgate Hill QLD

    The Stop Adani convoy is coming to town! Find out about the convoy and how you can get involved.

    The Stop Adani Convoy, lead by Bob Brown, is a convoy of people heading from Hobart to Canberra via the Galilee Basin in north Queensland. The convoy is a community commitment – an act of defiance for the future of our planet - and a peaceful protest against Gautam Adani’s obscene mine in the lead up to the federal election.  In the run up to the federal election it will be critical to pressure political parties to commit to stopping this disastrous project

    Come along to the information evening to learn more about the convoy, find out how you can get involved and help us make this journey huge!

    The convoy will be traveling up the coast of Australia and along the way there will be BIG rallies in Hobart, Melbourne, Sydney, Mullumbimby and Brisbane and Airlie Beach. Once the convoy reaches  North Queensland, people can join the Stop Adani frontline protest camp, Camp Nudja, near Bowen, or continue with the convoy back down to Canberra. In Canberra there will be a Climate Action Rally outside Parliament House on what could be the last Sunday before the Federal election.

    This is going to be a huge moment for the Stop Adani campaign and we would love you to be part of it.

  • takayna Ultra

    Friday, April 05, 2019 at 05:00 AM

    Join our inaugural 65km ultra-marathon event and help save takayna / Tarkine from logging, mining and off-road vehicle damage.

    Just announced as a sister race to the Ultra, the takayna22 shares a section of the same route along this magnificent wild coastline.

    This event will raise money to support our campaign to have takayna / Tarkine protected as a World Heritage listed National Park, returned to Aboriginal ownership.

    This run will traverse grass plains, amazing sands tracks along rugged wild coastlines and bush tracks. 

     

     

    Starting beside the dark brown buttongrass tannin-stained Nelson Bay River, the run immerses you immediately in rolling native grass plains and stands of dry eucalypt forest. Open beaches, dunes, and impressive low rocky sections, and more dark rivers and creeks to cross, are dispersed occasionally with fishing shack settlements and extensive Aboriginal heritage. Traversing complex coastal country and a stand of remnant old growth forest adjacent to the Arthur River, this run takes you across wild takayna – an experience you will never forget.

    Places are strictly limited to 100 runners for the takayna Ultra and 40 for the takayna22.

    Registrations closed on 15 March.
