Anti Adani coal project movement continues, despite Court setback

Court setback for anti-Adani campaign  Margaret Gleeson https://www.greenleft.org.au/glw-authors/margaret-gleeson, August 25, 2017  https://www.greenleft.org.au/content/court-setback-anti-adani-campaign

” … While further legal challenges in the High Court are still awaiting decision,  the movement in opposition to Adani is growing.  Protests have been held in recent weeks in Townsville and Brisbane  targetting Adani’s offices and those of likely contractor Downer.  Arrests were made.

“The campaign is currently organising a series of summits in  Queensland regional centres, Brisbane and Sydney  to plan the next steps in the campaign.  The focus so far has been on direct action.
This has successfully prevented Adani from securing financial support from the Big Four Banks.

” … as Adani continues to have the support of both the Coalition and Labor,  to defeat Adani and put an end to all new coalmines in Australia,  mass demonstrations will be needed along with  the lobbyingdirect action and legal tactics.”
