Australians demand lawmakers #StopAdani  from building the country’s largest coal mine

~ Brandon Jordan ‘Maggie McKeown, a community organizer for the Mackay Conservation Group
and a speaker at Monday’s demonstration, highlighted the
#StopAdani alliance as an example of resistance to the mine.

‘In March 2017, several groups, including McKeown’s, formed the coalition to stop the project.

‘“In the last 10 months, the #StopAdani alliance has grown
from a few groups to hundreds of groups and
to thousands and millions of supporters around Australia and the world,” McKeown said. …

‘With Monday’s demonstration as the official start to
further actions and demonstrations this year,
activists anticipate even more victories against the company and,
perhaps, an end to a near-decade conversation over the facility.

‘“We built a movement that nags politicians,” McKeown said.
“We want politicians to know that we’re not a movement that will go away.
We’re a movement that will keep lobbying until its stopped together.”’
