Right now, multinational mining giant Adani is doing everything it can to build the biggest coal mine in Australia’s history. The coal from this mine could single-handedly tip the planet above the safe limit of warming agreed on at the Paris climate talks.
But our elected leaders and big banks are not just letting Adani do this – they’re helping them.
Join us this Tuesday to find out what we can do together to Stop Adani!
What: Public screening of Stop Adani - Galilee documentary & soup night
When: Tuesday 2nd May, 6:20pm to 8pm
Where: The Croatian Wickham Sports Club, Albert Street, Wickham, NSW 2293

Our Federal Government has promised Adani $1 billion of our taxpayer funds. The Queensland Government has given Adani the power to fast-track approvals. Westpac has given Adani money in the past, but on Friday it caved to public pressure and ruled out investing in new thermal coal basins (like the Galilee).
After the screening, we will be celebrating this huge achievement and discussing what the plan is from here. By Tuesday we should have some news about who the next targets are so we can keep the pressure on until this Adani mine is stopped forever.
We are are gaining ground. Together we can #StopAdani!
Come along to the public screening of Stop Adani - Galilee documentary & soup night to get involved in this historic campaign.
We in the Hunter understand better than most just how devastating coal mining is on communities. Our friend and local coal campaigner Steve Phillips, will also speak about important coal campaigns in our own backyard, and what we can do to help closer to home.
For climate justice,
Zoe & Su
You might have heard about this remarkable man, Steve Posselt, making an 8-week kayaking mission to Canberra in a bid to make the Federal Government take climate change seriously.
This Saturday, our friends at Newcastle Climate Justice Uprising and Hunter Community Environment Centre will be hosting a welcoming party for Steve at Horseshoe beach, to celebrate his stop in Newcastle, still the world's biggest coal port.
When: 10 - 11.30am Saturday 21st January
Where: Horseshoe beach
Wear hot colours: red, yellow, orange. Bring banners and placards, or pick up one of the provided placards when you arrive to wave as Steve pulls up onto the beach. Bring your watercraft of any description!
We will hear from Steve about what has compelled him to make the journey and from Newcastle Climate Justice Uprising about how you can get involved locally in the fight for a safe climate future.
Steve will paddle down the NSW coast, stopping to give public talks about the Climate Emergency Declaration and collect petition signatures, then he'll drag his kayak over 170 km over mountainous terrain to Canberra to deliver the petition to Parliament.
You can sign the petition now at climateemergencydeclaratio
