People across Australia have been fighting for 10 years to stop one of the most devastating mining projects currently being planned on the globe. The Adani coal mine, if it goes ahead, will open up the Galilee basin - one of the biggest untouched coal reserves on the planet - paving the way for at least eight more coal mines to be built. All at a time when scientists are warning we can't build any more fossil fuel infrastructure if we want to avoid catastrophic global heating.
Australia is already the world's number one exporter of coal and these mega-mines would double their current output! If that isn't enough, if built, Adani’s Carmichael mine will destroy the ancestral lands, waters and cultures of Indigenous people.
On the front line of the Adani mine standing their ground are the Wangan and Jagalingou people who have never given their free, prior, and informed consent to Adani’s mine and have said "No" to Adani five times. Adani has not only stolen their land (with the government's permission) but also bankrupted their spokesperson.
The Wangan and Jagalingou traditional custodians are joined by people from across Australia standing up to their corrupt politicians and the mining giants who own them. Together they have built the biggest climate movement in Australia's history.
In 2020 documents were leaked showing that Lloyd's of London were insuring the Adani mine. This kicked off a wave of actions targeting the individual insurance companies that make up the Lloyd's marketplace. The majority of the insurance companies involved have committed to not reinsure Adani. The fight isn’t over yet, and we will continue to demand all insurance companies rule out this dangerous project.
It’s unfortunately not just the UK insurance industry supporting Adani. Shockingly, the British Science Museum has joined forces with Adani, allowing them to sponsor their new Energy Revolution gallery! We are supporting groups across the world who are demanding the museum drops Adani.
