Vigil Sep 14

It is terrible when First Nation custodians are bankrupted and their native title is stripped away in favour of mining billionaires.

Vigil September 14

This is what has just happened to Uncle Adrian Burragubba, and the Wangan & Jagalingou people who may become trespassers on their own Country. They have established a protest camp on the site of Adani's mega mine, and it is likely that the police may evict them forcibly.

This is the time to stand in solidarity.
Wangan & Jagalingou have stood between us and the threat of opening Galilee Basin's massive 29 billion tons of carbon - the fourth largest on the planet, nearly twice as big as Exxon since 1988.

Join us on Saturday 14th September at the corner of Burwood and Glenferrie, for climate justice and intergenerational justice.

We will hand out Climate Strike flyers and garner support for this critical frontline fight - thank for your RSVP, and we would love your support on Facebook too.

    I will never forget listening to Uncle Adrian Burragubba talking to me of what it would mean to lose the sacred Doongmabulla Springs – the home of the Rainbow Serpent, the origin of Time itself. “If the Springs dry up, we will die as a people”. I promised him that I would do all I could to stop the Adani mine. This is very emotional for me. It is so unjust that Adani’s Cayman’s profits and the interest of major real estate firms should come before ancient wisdom, and the needs of landowners and farmers for water. The Adani mine will drain the Great Artesian Basin in perpetuity, because the depth of the 6 pits are below the level of the Great Artesian Basin, and the dewatering bores will puncture the basal layer – the Rewan Foundation.
