Palaszczuk, no special treatment for Adani!

To the Hon. Premier Palaszczuk,

We are appalled that you have allowed the compulsory acquisition of 3568 hectares of agricultural land from Queensland landholders for Adani’s private rail line.

This is more special treatment for Adani!

You have also granted free, unlimited and unregulated access to Queensland’s groundwater and allowed a royalties holiday worth $320 million of Queensland taxpayer money.

The mine will extract up to 12,000 million litres of water every year from Queensland waterways, diverting up to 720 billion litres away from creeks and rivers over the life of the mine. Modelling demonstrates that two springs will be shut down, which would be a massive blow to rural communities that rely on groundwater sources.

In Queensland, water is our most precious resource, both for environmental health and for agricultural use. It supports regional communities and economies and should not be left in the hands of a company that has a demonstrated history of environmental abuse, both here and overseas.

We ask of you Premier Palaszczuk, to protect our land and our water from an untrustworthy company like Adani, and revoke the decision made by the Coordinator General to compulsorily acquire land for Adani.

    Have they actually acquired the land or puffing and beating their chests saying they are going to do it? Why don’t they all go home, make a cuppa and put all this madness down to a bad day at the office…. wake up, apologise and get on with ensuring we live our lives without corruption.

    why is the government using special regulations for public infrastructure to benefit a private development which independent specialists forecast will never make a profit? Why not support the local farmers to the same extent?

    The ADANI mine is wrong even for short term gains – longer term coal IS NOT OUR FUTURE. Spend the $1b gift to ADANI rail on promoting renewables in sunshine queensland. Maybe even take the $50b on French submarines which we do not even know if they are going to be able to have the key feature of stealth – which only comes with nuke subs… What a disaster you politicians are…. just looking after your re-election not the well being of the nation….
