Stop Adani Sunshine Coast rally at the front of local MP Ted O'Brien's office to send out a clear message - No more special water deals for Adani!

Julie Reeves, spokesperson for Stop Adani Sunshine Coast said, "Adani has been given a special deal to drain almost as much water from the Suttor River as all the farmers combined. That's 12.5 billion litres of water every year, without a proper assessment of Adani's water scheme.

"In the meantime, Adani have illegally started work on-site and are being investigated for drilling into aquifers of the Great Artesian Basin during a crippling drought. Yet our local MP Ted O'Brien believes "there is no environmental grounds to oppose the Adani mine".

"We are asking for Adani's water licence to be revoked and to be subject to a proper environmental impact assessment.

"We will hold Ted O'Brien to account. With almost two thirds of Australians opposing Adani's coal project, we need Ted O'Brien to stand up for the community, not billionaire coal miners. Mining and burning coal is Australia's number one contribution to climate change. We want our local MP to stop this coal mine and help put Australia on a path to renewable energy.

"We will be ramping up our community engagement in the lead up to the Federal Election. This is democracy in action. Stop Adani Sunshine Coast won't stop until Ted O'Brien says he will stop Adani," said Julie.
