The Stop Adani Convoy passed through Rockhampton this afternoon and settled for the evening with 600 people, including hundreds of locals at Emu Park in a lantern parade for the Great Barrier Reef.
Some 100 people put the case for coal. Bob Brown fielded hecklers, telling one that if the heckler believed sea-levels had not risen 20cm in the last century, he (Brown) believed the Earth is flat. LNP MP Michelle Landry, who had promoted the counter protest, failed to turn up.
‘That Ms Landry didn’t come is a cameo of the larger picture: the Morrison government has no clue how to tackle the climate emergency impacting the reef, the Murray Darling basin and the future of this region,’ Bob Brown said.
Bob Brown Foundation will accept Isaac Regional Mayor Anne Baker’s request for the parties for and against the Adani Mine to have a round table meeting on Friday before the convoy enters Clermont
