Friends of the Galilee Basin, a new Queensland-based group in the campaign to stop the Adani coal mine is launching a public crowdfunding appeal for $500,000 today to purchase a base to be used for the campaign.
Referring to the climate emergency, Friends of Galilee spokesperson Ruby Thorburn said that ‘this movement is just one step in what will inevitably be the most telling period in human history ... the clock is ticking and we are running out of time.’
Former Greens leader Bob Brown visited the campaign centre on the weekend and backs the appeal. ‘The folk working there are the salt of the nation. With governments having caved in for Gautam Adani’s mine, it’s heartening to see people preparing the next round of opposition in our age of climate emergency.
Their centre for campaign excellence needs financial backing and the crowdfunder is a good way of letting responsible Australians come to its aid.'
