Successes

STOPPED ADANI GETTING ANY PRIVATE FUNDING
December 1 2018

Thanks to our people-powered movement, Adani can’t find a private investor to back this climate-wrecking project. Dozens of major banks have ruled out working with Adani, including the 4 big Australian banks, and all the big Chinese banks. Adani have been forced to pay for the mine themselves and have subsequently had to scale back the size of the mine.
STOPPED ADANI GETTING $1 BILLION FROM AUSTRALIAN TAXPAYERS
December 1 2018

$1 billion dollars for a billionaire? Yeah, no thanks. When Resources Minister Matt Canavan proposed the insane idea of giving Adani $1 billion of taxpayer money to fast-track the Carmichael project, furious Australians leapt into action. Through creative community actions and a big push during the QLD state election, our movement convinced the QLD Government to veto the Coalition’s billion-dollar handout for Adani.
EXPOSED ADANI FOR THEIR DODGY TRACK RECORD AND BREAKING AUSTRALIAN LAW
December 1 2018

The Adani Files summarised the worst of Adani’s dodgy track record of harming workers and the environment, including allegations of corruption, bribery, fraud, and tax evasion. In March 2016, a community delegation confronted Premier Palaszczuk in India to share the story of Adani’s impacts on farmers and reef tourism operators.
BUILT A POWERFUL MOVEMENT
December 1 2018

The #StopAdani movement has built one of the biggest grassroots networks in Australia. Over 100 local #StopAdani groups have kept Adani’s coal in the ground by organising thousands of creative actions, and pushing dozens of politicians and over 60 companies to side with the community and oppose Adani. The next generation are helping lead the fight too - young people from the incredible SchoolStrike4Climate movement have organised the biggest demonstrations in support of climate action in Australian history. Their number one demand? Stop all new coal, oil and gas projects, including Adani’s mine.
KEPT GALILEE COAL IN THE GROUND
December 1 2018

In 2012 there were 9 coal mines proposed in the Galilee Basin and 7 coal port expansions proposed along the coast of Queensland. Today, not a single coal mine or coal port expansion has gone ahead. In fact, there's only one thing standing between our people-powered movement and ensuring that not a single tonne of coal is mined from the Galilee Basin - and that's Adani's coal mine.
