The protesters gathered at Labor MP Lisa Chesters’ office at noon before marching to the office of Senator Bridget McKenzie. Carrying placards and wearing pictures of black lungs, members from the Bendigo District Australian Conservation Foundation delivered letters to both politicians.

Victorian Committee of Doctors for the Environment Australia chair Dr John Iser also spoke at the protest, voicing concerns about health implications of the mine’s coal pollution on its workers and surrounding communities.

It is the first of two events planned in Bendigo for the national “Stop Adani Shakeup” week.
