Demanding that the Australian & Queensland governments stop supporting the opening of new coal mines.
We listened to scientists who have witnessed back to back coral bleaching caused by climate change saying we need to honour our international agreement signed in Paris last year. An agreement to limit global warming to below 2C.
The NAIF (North Australian Infrastructure Fund) a fund set up to develop Australia’s north is meeting in Cairns this week. Under consideration is a billion dollar loan to an Indian Billionaire to build a railway to open up the vast Carmichael area to coal mining. The carbon released from mining this coal would push the global temperature well above the 2C agreed in Paris.
It would be stealing our children’s future.
The protest gathered much local, national & international media.
