National Doorknock to #StopAdani

Local community groups determined to Stop Adani will be going ‘street by street’ on Saturday October 6, knocking on doors to inform people about the reasons we need the mine to be halted.

The Adani mine would be the largest coal mine in Australia’s history and if constructed would destroy any chance of a safe climate future.

Adani has already started illegal work, cut the cost of their rail line in half and say they have locked in finance to start digging. Meanwhile, our new Prime Minister is a big supporter of coal billionaires.

Australians are outraged.

We don’t support Adani, yet our politicians do.

They could #StopAdani tomorrow, but they won’t unless they can see, feel and hear our movement everywhere.

That’s why from October 6-7, people across the country are going to hit the streets in the National Doorknock to #StopAdani. We will let our communities know what is at stake with Adani, invite them to join our movement and put up signs on every street!

Bellingen Town and Bellingen Rural Street by Street groups are coming together to let everyone in the community know that we want a stop to this mine.  We will be holding a ‘street by street’ door knocking event on the morning of October 6, where small groups of people will be out and about informing people of the reasons we need this to stop.

From 10am – 1pm, you can also catch members of these groups outside Bellingen IGA where we will be talking to people about the issues, handing out leaflets and yard signs for anyone who wants to support us in this action.

Are you in?

Sign up to join with others in our community for the National Doorknock to #StopAdani.

WHEN: Saturday 6th October 10am-1pm

WHERE: Lavender Bridge car park (meeting place for door knocking event)
