Media Release: Brown says Morrison must heed UN call.

Environmentalist Bob Brown calls on Canavan and Morrison to respect international law as the UN has called for suspension of the Adani mine go-ahead. Canavan should respect global law on indigenous rights as well as domestic law.

Brown also calls on Labor leader Bill Shorten to heed the UN call for a suspension until global and international law has been implemented.

ABC news is reporting that the UN has asked the Australian Government to consider suspending the Adani mine until it gains the support of a group of traditional owners who are fighting the miner in court.

    From a leading international geological consultant with 49 years in the Australian mining industry: our species’ existence is threatened by fossil fuelled power, and the Adani coal mine and all others planned in the Galilee Basin should be prohibited forthwith. My home and base is Townsville, also the home of Adani’s north Queensland operations. Our city’s temperature is rising at 2.7 degrees per century: 3 times that of the earth and 2 times that of Australia. What heating is recorded in your town or city? Look it up on the BOM website, decide for yourself whether global heating is happening in your hometown, join the Stop Adani movement, and be an activist saving the planet for your children and grandchildren. If coal continues any further, humanity is doomed.
