Want to STOP Adani? Take down Downer!

Downer has been traveling around Queensland with Adani, talking up their $2b plans to build and run Carmichael mine. Downer’s ‘letters of award‘ do not become enforceable contracts until Adani reaches financial closure. Thus far, they have ignored calls from the Traditional Owners to pull out of their relationship with Adani.

Galilee Blockade has written to Downer, clearly stating our intention to pressure a withdrawal from their plans to build and operate Adani’s proposed Carmichael mine. Our civil resistance campaign will target Downer sites around the country with escalating direct actions. Again and again.

Once we “persuade” Downer to cancel this contract, Adani will need to find another Australian company of similar size and speciality to build and run their mine. Any possible candidates will know that we’ve forced Downer out. They’ll also know we’ve got dozens of direct action groups waiting for them, escalating and becoming more effective. Good luck with that Adani!

The best way to STOP Adani? Take Downer from under them. Contact us to find out more.

In 40 years time people will be talking about the campaign to stop Adani like they now talk about the Franklin. “Where were you and what did you do?”
