How to stop Adani

When multi-billionaire, Gautam Adani, decided he wanted to build one of largest coal mines in the world in Queensland, very little stood in his way. The then Queensland Labour Government and the Federal Liberal Government not only rubber-stamped it but offered Adani taxpayer-funded loans and subsidies. The local communities wanted the jobs that Adani dangled.

The only thing that stood in his way? The rest of us.

In less than 5 years, everyday Australians managed to get all the major banks to refuse financing for Adani, to get the Federal Government to back down on its $1B free loan, and to frustrate and delay the project to the point that they may make it unviable.

How did everyday Australians take on a billionaire with infinitely deep pockets?

Come and hear Glen Klatovsky Deputy CEO. Campaign strategist at 350.org, Lilli Barto Frontline Action on Coal organiser and founding member of the Activist Legal Network, and Ben Davies, Head of Community at Chuffed.org who’ll share their insights on how protest, community organising and online fundraising come together to #StopAdani.
