Palaszczuk, no special treatment for Adani!

To the Hon Premier Palaszczuk and Treasurer Trad,

At the last election you promised 'no state funding for Adani’ and that 'the project needs to stack up financially, independently, it needs to stand on its own two feet'. 

But the Qld government continues to provide special treatment and handouts for Adani. 

Secret cabinet documents reveal the Qld govt is actively considering giving Adani up to $100 million of taxpayers' money to upgrade a road to the mine, which the Coordinator General says Adani should fund! $100 million for one road translates as nearly SEVEN TIMES more funding than the $15 million the Qld govt allocated to their plan to reduce carbon emissions.

The Qld govt is also offering Adani a cut-price royalty deal that could cost Queenslanders up to $700 million!

Premier Palaszczuk and Treasurer Trad: Honour your election promise, no special treatment for Adani! Rule out public funding for Adani's roads and a cut-price royalty deal!

    You have sold our industries , sold out our farmers , raped our country and are selling it off to the highest bidder all because none of you politicians know how to manage the country. Wanting to play with the big boys in the world trade and throw the hat into the circle when we are to small to compete in the circle.

    Yes we have to create jobs and grow but why couldnt you build on what we have and make it stronger as right now the world wants a piece of what we got. You are giving away our biggest assets which is our land and our water in which we have to pay ridiculous prices for but you will sell it to the Chinese and give it to Adani.

    We stand in a very strong position to create more jobs by developing land to grow food and stock to sell to China and places that are struggling to feed thier own . Why dont you give an Australian company 1 billion dollars to create a food and water industry to supply the world and hence have an income for Australia and create jobs not give 1 billion dollars in which we dont have to a goddamn overseas company that is coming to decimate and ruin our country so he can supply his country with coal . Now i am not a degreed person but that just doesnt add up to me.

    Also its about time you all stood back and took stock of why you are all in parliament and that is to serve the people and what they want. You spent how many million dollars to put to the vote about same sex marriage when you couldnt come to an agreeance on it but you couldnt put the Adani issue to a public vote when it will go down in history as one of the most embarrassing ,intolerable, destructive, times in Australia Politics.

    To watch you all in parliament how you taunt and bicker at each other is worse than children in a playground and you want people to respect and vote for you. Its not even called debating anymore. Then how about your little retirement scheme from politics and the kick backs no wander we are in financial ruin and you have a stab at the people on unemployment when you all help create the situation. How about giving up your perks to help create more jobs.

    For the people HEY I thought we were living in 2017 not 1817 when will the beheadings and whippings be bought in.Pull your heads out of your arse and look to the future as I am sure you want your children and grandchildren to have some piece of dirt that they can call Australia!!!!!!

    You were elected by the people of Queensland to rigoursly apply a duty of care & due diligence when approving any development on behalf of the people & environment of Queensland.

    To act & give carriage to a company, moreover a company that has an international dubious record for environmental vansalism, human rights & business practices (#4corners), is downright culpable!

    How load & clear do we have to be? We do not want another #climate & #reef destroying coal mine!

    We want a supply of energy that will not cost the earth.

    We want ecologically sustainable energy that will allow future generations to continue on this planet!.

    It’s never too late to #StopAdani!, your grandchildren will thank you!

    As it is now, your name, in history, will be amongst those who will be held accountable, for knowingly perpetrating #ecocide, the deliberate destruction of our life support system’ with impunity!
