Shine a light for the reef – Melbourne
31 August, 2016
Australian Youth Climate Coalition
Last year, ACF took the federal government to court to challenge approval of Adani’s giant Carmichael coal mine in Queensland. The verdict is in.
The court just decided that Minister’s Hunt’s approval of Adani’s Carmichael coal mine will stand.
It’s madness that our government can legally approve the biggest coal mine in Australia's history when pollution is killing our reef.
Since this mine was approved, global warming has fuelled the worst coral bleaching on record. If we don’t cut pollution, the Great Barrier Reef could be gone in just a few decades.
This outcome of this court case is critically important. It proves we need a new generation of environment laws.
Hundreds of us are coming together at this critical moment, to send our new government a strong message – Australians want you to choose our beautiful reef, not more polluting coal.
Join us to shine a light for the reef with big, colourful actions in Melbourne and Brisbane. We’ll light up the night with lanterns in colours of the reef so our love for the reef shines bright.
