Tell the QLD Govt to enforce the law and uphold our human rights!

It is our legally protected human right, as First Nations people, to be present on our Country to practice culture and perform ceremony to protect the land. The greatest threat we face today is Adani’s destructive coal mine.

But the Queensland Government is failing to do its job and enforce the law against Adani, allowing them to harm the environment and interfere with our cultural rights, which are now protected under the Queensland Human Rights Act.

So, we acted. This week our lawyers delivered a letter to Queensland’s Environment Minister, Leanne Linard, requesting that she step in and take enforcement action against Adani for breaching its Environmental Authority under the Environmental Protection Act.

We are calling on the Queensland Government to do its job and stop the damage to our Country and the abuse of our human rights.

But we need your help. Can you please make a call to ask the Queensland Environment Minister to take immediate action against Adani for its environmental harm and the impacts on our cultural rights.

Call Qld Environment Minister Leanne Linard

Ministerial Office: (07) 3719 7330

Key points:

  • I’m calling/writing in regards to the legal letter that was delivered to the Minister by lawyers acting on behalf of Wangan and Jagalingou Cultural Custodians.
  • Wangan and Jagalingou people have raised very serious concerns that Adani’s Carmichael mine is producing excessive amounts of noise and dust that allegedly breaches the conditions of their environmental approvals. This noise and dust pollution is interfering with the rights of Wangan and Jagalingou people to be present on their Country and practice culture. This is an abuse of their human rights.
  • The Environment Minister has an obligation to investigate these alleged breaches of Adani’s Environmental Authority. I want the Queensland Government to enforce the law against Adani and protect the rights of Wangan and Jagalingou people by taking immediate enforcement action against Adani.
