When: 7th October 2017, 1.30 pm Where: Congo Beach, Campground Road
Adani has been exposed on the ABC’s Four Corners program as damaging people’s health, the livelihoods of farmers and fishing people and the environment in India. Adani is using foreign tax havens and has a corporate structure that would allow them to minimise tax paid in Australia.

The former Indian Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh said that it was almost beyond belief that the Australian Government would look to provide concessional loans and other taxpayer support to facilitate Adani Group's coal mining project — because of the consequences for climate change of developing a giant new mine and opening an entire new coal basin.
We face the risk of worse storms, worse bushfires and rising sea levels unless there is immediate action to reduce carbon pollution.
Australia has one of the worst pollution rates per capita and the dithering by the federal government means that our pollution is continuing to rise. The good news is that a transition to renewable energy will give us cheaper electricity.
