Environmentalist Bob Brown says his foundation will take up the Adani gauntlet and organise a cavalcade of cars from Hobart to the Central Queensland mine site in time for the next federal election.

“Today’s announcement of a go-ahead for the mine, before final state and federal process is complete, is Adani responding to the Morrison government wanting an early go-ahead. This decision was made by billionaire Guatam Adani in India who has no idea of the Australian people’s loathing of his mine monster. Adani also has no concept of how negatively the Morrison stunt, of holding up a lump of coal in parliament, went down in the average Australian household,” Brown said.

“If the mine does proceed, our gathering in protest will proceed and join others as well. Let the issue be decided in the ballot box. Australians can choose between coal and coral. This election is now shaping up as a referendum on accelerated global heating.”

“The public sentiment today will be with the intelligent young Australians ‘striking’ against global heating, not billionaire Adani’s plan to burn more coal.”

    Great move. Do it before he starts digging and before we go to the polls.

    We need to act now to Stop Adani. By the federal election will be too late.

    Our politicians are blind, or don’t care about our children’s future, our future or our planet’s future.

    In my opinion, this dogged determination to do the wrong thing is starting to get just a little suspicious.

    What could be the reason for this lack of reason, for this mindless destruction of our environment.?
