Text that says #StopAdani in a heptagon

Ask your MP to oppose Adani


The Stop Adani campaign is kicking goals. So far, two Liberal MPs have come out publicly opposing the $1 billion handout of public money for Adani's polluting coal mining project.

Then last week Westpac ruled out financing Adani!

On top of all that, over the weekend Federal Labor took their strongest ever stance against the mine. Shadow Energy Minister Mark Butler slammed Turnbull for being "chained to this Adani project that doesn't bear any relationship to commercial reality".1

QLD Labor are behind the times, still rolling out the red carpet for Adani. We need to make sure they know that every time they give special treatment to Adani, they're making thousands of Queenslanders angry. This mine is so unpopular it's toxic, and it's our job to remind our politicians.

Can you email your State Labor MP and ask them to oppose Adani?

Here are some things you could mention:

  • Shadow energy and environment minister Mark Butler recently said that the "the economics of this project don't stack up" and that "we should be thinking about other economic development and job opportunities for North Queensland."1 Can you ask your state Labor MP to step up and back in Mr Butler's comments?

  • Westpac has become the latest bank to rule out financing Adani's coal project. That means all four big banks have said they won't.2 If they won't, why should the government spend public money on it?

  • Adani are under investigation for corruption, fraud, money laundering and tax evasion in India – how can we trust them with public money?3

  • Don't forget to ask your MP if they will publicly oppose Adani.
