Media Release: Adani writ ‘disgusting’- Brown

Serial coal miner Gautam Adani’s writ against peaceful campaigner Ben Pennings will send a shudder through every Australian who values democracy, free speech and the right to peaceful protest, Bob Brown said in Hobart today.

"Adani’s writ follows his use of the court to evict Wangan and Jagalingou people from their land in the Galilee Basin where he is proceeding with an obscene environmentally-disastrous and unnecessary coalmine.

Gautam Adani is echoing the American Wise Use Movements dictum that if you can’t win the environmental argument, take out the environmental advocates.  I am disgusted by this billionaire Goliaths effort to silence an Australian citizen from speaking up for his heritage."
