It’s going to take an unprecedented community movement to bury Adani’s plans to build the biggest coal mine in Australia’s history once and for all.
350.org Australia has a vision and a plan for the coming months to build their movement into an unstoppable force. All they need now to make it happen is your help.
EthicalJobs.com.au is proud to partner with 350.org Australia, the national arm of a global movement that urges the public to take grassroots action against climate change.
Until 31 March 2017 EthicalJobs.com.au will match, dollar for dollar, every donation made to 350.org Australia on this page, up to a total of $15,000.
So donate now, have your impact doubled, and help prevent dangerous climate change.
Of all the climate-threatening projects around the world, Indian company Adani’s mega coal mine project in outback Queensland is quite possibly the biggest climate fight of our time.
If built, the proposed mine will be the largest ever seen in Australia and generate an enormous 4.7 billion tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions over its lifetime.
That’s equivalent to nine times' Australia’s overall annual emissions – from just one mine.
The project is also set to threaten the already vulnerable Great Barrier Reef, with plans to make way for thousands of coal ships each year. And that’s before the mine’s climate change impacts cause even more irreversible damage to the reef.
What's just as scary is that both the Federal and Queensland Governments have now approved most of the licenses needed for the mine to go ahead – in fact, the Queensland Government now has the power to fast-track the mine, while the Federal Government is gearing up to hand Adani $1 billion in taxpayer funds.
350.org Australia is part of a global climate change movement committed to putting a stop to this. But there's only a short window of time remaining to #StopAdani – once final approvals are locked in, Adani will have the full letter of the law behind them.
So at a time when our climate is already crumbling, we must stop this coal mine while we still can.
The fight to #StopAdani
Your donation will help 350.org Australia to:
- Produce and share the powerful #StopAdani documentary, aiming to grow the movement through community and home viewings – and to inspire a real grassroots push to stand up against the disastrous project.
- Take the documentary on tour with a national roadshow across the country, rallying thousands of people together in town hall-style meetings to educate them about Adani’s dangerous plans.
- Bring with them some of the best campaigners from across the country, as well as community members who will be impacted by Adani’s project.
- Organise thousands of Australians into coordinated, community action groups ready to oppose the mine. With your help, 350.org Australia will train them, support them and organise them for action.
Donate now and help make an impact
The first $15,000 donated through this page will be matched, dollar for dollar, by EthicalJobs.com.au to support 350.org Australia's work to #StopAdani.
UPDATE: We’ve now reached our first goal of $15,000! Thank you so much! We’ve subsequently raised the target to our ultimate goal of $39,000 (or $54,000 including the matched donation from EthicalJobs.com.au), which will fully fund both the production of the documentary and the running of the roadshow - AND allow the roadshow to reach even more locations!
Just select an amount on the right of this page, and follow the steps from there.
The 350 Australia #StopAdani roadshow will travel through five cities - Townsville, Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne - in the last week of March. Click here to find out how you can join in the climate fight of our time.
