The Adani mine, currently being built, will be the largest export coal mine in Australia, impacting 28,000 hectares of land: an area more than five times that of Sydney Harbour. This megamine is extraordinarily at odds with protecting the planet against the climate crisis. We're asking musicians across our country to stand tall with the groundswell of Australians who have decided enough is enough.
Green Music Australia is working with musicians who do not want this mine to go ahead, putting them in touch with groups across the country. Artists are turning up at rallies, performing and wearing shirts to show their fans and the world that Adani won't win.
If you’re a musician wanting to get on board, or an event organiser wanting to engage with musicians, we want to hear from you. Contact us!
“I want my son to grow up in a healthy world, and know that we fought hard to protect his generation's future. The Carmichael mine is the opposite of what we should be doing right now. This coal mine is so big it will tip our climate into environmental devastation. How can anyone with a conscience think that it is OK for our children to inherit that?”
