In response to news last week that the Queensland government would be forking out hundreds of millions of dollars for Adani's rail project to connect controversial mines in the Galilee Basin with the Abbot Point coal terminal, on 27 November we launched #noadanihandouts, a photo petition to the Queensland government about all the things you'd rather see instead of handouts to massive mining companies.
Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney has even said that Queensland's public assets will be privatised to fund these handouts. So that's straight from the public purse into Adani's! This is in addition to the Queensland government promising a royalty holiday for the first mines to get off the ground in the Galilee Basin.
If you're as passionate about this issue as we are, we'd love you to submit a photo! You can upload them to the album on our facebook page, email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text them to 0408 583 694.
