Senator Di Natale (pictured) said that while Labor and Liberal accept massive corporate donations from Big Coal ‘they’ll remain hell-bent on approving the Adani coal mine which, if it goes ahead, will contribute to the death of the Great Barrier Reef, plain and simple’.
‘The obstacles to making the transition to a clean energy economy are political, nor technological. But we need to act now. We Greens know that to do this we need to work both within the system and from without,’ Senator Di Natale said.
The senator will meet locals at the Ocean Shores Tavern at 11am for a ‘Stop Adani Action Morning’ to pressure Labor and the Liberal-Nationals to end their support for the mine.
The morning will involve a training session for community members who want to campaign against the destructive mining project.
On Sunday at 7m, Senator Di Natale will hold a public meeting at the Brunswick Picture House to share the Greens vision for Australia and outline the big issues in the federal parliament.
