“As the clouds gather on a biosphere which cannot cope, we human beings are both the problem and the solution.”
– Bob Brown

 

Approvals for the Adani mega-mine have been rammed through with appalling disregard for the Traditional Owners, the country they have protected for a thousand generations, the precious water we all rely on and endangered species.

Native title over the lands of the Wangan and Jagalingou Traditional Owners extinguished, a licence allowing Adani to take unlimited groundwater for 60 years for free, and land clearing has begun which will destroy the habitat of the endangered Black-throated Finch.

With Queensland and NSW reeling from the worst drought on record, the Adani mine threatens rivers, ancient springs, and aquifers of the Great Artesian Basin (GAB).

Meanwhile, the peaceful campaign to oppose Adani's mega-mine is building.

The Wangan & Jagalingou Traditional Owners continue to defend their country, establishing a Cultural Sovereignty Camp on country. Inspirational community members are peacefully protesting on the frontlines and the Dob-in-a-Contractor campaign is starting to bite, with the Queensland Resources Council calling it "unprecedented...nothing as concentrated and as organised..."

 


 

 

Now our Foundation is about to embark on a nationwide campaign to showcase and bolster these ongoing campaign actions to Stop Adani, with the launch of our new film and book, Convoy.

 

SEE A FULL LIST OF OUR EVENTS HERE

 

The film premiere and book launch of Convoy will be held at Hobart's State Cinema on Thursday 3 October at 6pm, followed by a series of events from Albury-Wodonga to Canberra, through the Murray-Darling Basin and into Brisbane in the last weeks of October. Bob Brown will join Jenny Weber at these events to update people about Adani's activities here in Australia and globally, and most importantly, how they can take action.

 

 

What you can do:

  1. Hold a film screening in your local town; we are ready to work with you, so send us an email to get started.
  2. Volunteer at events in Albury-Wodonga, Canberra, Bathurst, Dubbo and Brisbane. If you live in one of these places and would like to take action with us, we'd love to hear from you.

Our film, Convoy, is about the power of peaceful protest, and of individuals, to make a difference. It shows what motivates people to take a stand and empower others to do the same.

 

 

The accompanying book has inspirational speeches from Stop Adani Convoy rallies, including acclaimed author Richard Flanagan, Aboriginal leader Adrian Burragubba, frontline activists Hayley Sestokas and Shane Primrose, Climate Strike organiser Mia Thom, Geoff Cousins, and Christine Milne. The book is a photographic chronicle of the Stop Adani Convoy, an act of mass community defiance and hope.

 

 

Jenny Weber, our Campaign Manager, will work with you to fill your local venue and host an inspiring action-oriented event, focussing on Adani, the Drought and Australia's Coal Disaster. We will provide the film to screen, books to sell and support to make your local event a success.

With your help, we will take this campaign to the next level.

    Any response to the question about the availability or otherwise of camping sites in the stopover points?

    Also, I have a question about how you intend keeping convoy participants up to date on changes, happenings, etc. during the convoy? I do not use Facebook or Twitter and expect that there would be others among such a concerned and aware group who don’t support these.

    Maybe you can add strikes at commonwealth banks too? Since they are the only major bank still funding this disaster.

    I’m trying to contact Jasmine Wills for advice on my following concern.

    I am enrolled in the convoy and understand that you are the logistics organiser for the event.

    I have a question that relates to a concern I, and others I have spoken to, have about what to expect at each of the stopping points along the way.

    My wife and I intend to pitch and tent for the night at each town but if there are likely to be two to three hundred vehicles arriving at the same time all looking for accommodation with perhaps over half that number looking for a camp site we envisage that official camping areas will be overwhelmed.

    As it is not possible for everyone to book a camping space we foresee great confusing at each stopping points unless the convoy organisers have, or intend to, arranged with the local councils to make available alternative sites with facilities (showers and toilets) where tents can be erected, for example at showgrounds.
    Or will we have to drive on to nearby towns until we find anew approved campsite?

    Are you able to give us some indication of what you have arranged or what to expect.

    This is wonderful of you to organize, and we’ll help any way we can, perhaps even be able to drive along some of the way. Looking for ways to raise funds right now, as that’s always needed. Much love and gratitude for getting it going. Steve Biddulph

    How many of these cars will be powered by fossil fuels?

    Better to walk it, you might just make it for the Grand Opening.

    My Grandchildren, those here now, may live till the year 2100, Their future children may live to the year 2140. The massive problems that the government dismiss as far into the future i.e. 2100 are actually in your grandchild’s lifetime. Do something about that..now.
