Frontline Action on Coal
The Murdoch papers of Central Queensland can peddle their coal-loving propaganda, but here in Rockhampton, locals have turned out this morning to show their support for strong climate action and the Bob Brown Foundation Stop Adani Convoy.
Former Greens leader Bob Brown and Current leader Richard Di Natale have joined protestors at the Stop Adani convoy rally in Wodonga.
Former Greens leader Bob Brown has spearheaded an anti-Adani convoy, travelling north to protest the divisive proposed coal mine in Queensland. The convoy of more than 70 cars has left Hobart on its two-week campaign journey up Australia's east coast. Senator Matt Canavan criticised the 'do-gooders and bludgers' heading to Queensland and 'telling us all what to do'. The fleet is expected to reach Claremont on April 28. The proposed mine site is about 160 kilometres northwest of the town.
The Stop Adani Convoy left Hobart on Wednesday morning, 17th of April, with Bob Brown (in what looks like a bit of an “up you” to the Coalition), leading the way in a borrowed Tesla electric car.
Organisers say that the aim of the convoy is to, “…keep fossil fuel extraction, greenhouse gas production and global warming front and centre in the run to the election.”Read more

“We are a celebration in motion. It is a community commitment – an act of defiance – for the future of our planet. A peaceful protest against Gautam Adani’s mine, which his operatives say will be under way soon,” said Bob Brown.Read more
