#StopAdani Sunshine Coast demands engineering firm GHD cut ties with Adani in a National Week of Action

Guest speaker: Eminent climate scientist, Emeritus Prof. Henry Nix.

Nanook, a life size Polar Bear, and a throng of citizens will protest the climate threatening and destructive work of GHD and Adani. A delegation will demand GHD cease building the Adani coal mine.

Of the handful of contractors that continue to build Adani's devastating coal mine, engineering and construction company GHD is one of the biggest.
 
Spokesperson for Stop Adani Sunshine Coast, David Bowling, said, "We are calling on GHD to pull out of Adani's dirty coal mine and stand with the two-thirds of Australians who oppose this project.

"The mining and burning of coal causes climate change which has already delivered more frequent and more intense droughts, bushfires, heatwaves and storms to communities around Australia. We can't afford to let Adani and GHD destroy our future, so we are joining #StopAdani groups around the country to show GHD we are serious about preventing Adani's coal mine. GHD needs to realise that their reputation is on the line."

Over 50 companies including construction giant Downer have already ruled out working with Adani on their Carmichael coal project. The proposed Adani coal mine would be Australia's largest ever and comes at a time when we must move away from new coal mining to deal with the threat of climate change. Two-thirds of Australians are opposed to the Adani mine which will fuel global warming, hasten the extinction of species such as the Black-throated Finch, cause irreversible impacts on groundwater and drive coral bleaching and the destruction of our Great Barrier Reef.
