Bowen, 17th October: Several upstanding members of the community will today appear in the Bowen Magistrates Court after they peacefully blocked the road into Adani’s Abbot Point coal port, as part of a growing community campaign to stop Adani building their mega coal mine in Central Queensland.

The community members are facing charges of trespass for the peaceful action they took to protect communities from Adani’s climate and Reef-wrecking coal mine.

Recent polling indicates that the majority of Australians do not support Adani’s mine. Despite this, the Queensland and Federal Governments are gearing up to hand Adani a $1 billion taxpayer-subsidized loan.
