People are being urged to wear red when they gather tomorrow on Main Beach at Byron Bay as part of the National Day of Action opposing the proposed Adani coal mine.
The protest will take place at 3pm, although people are urged to gather at 2pm to make signs for the action.
Another protest will take place in front of Nimbin Rocks at midday. People are asked to gather at Nimbin Road near the viewing spot.
Further north, the National Day of Action opposing the coalmine will be held at the Norries Headland Park Cabarita from 11 until 1pm.
The Adani Corporation wants to build the biggest coal mine ever in Australia on the land of the Wangan and Jagalingou People in the Galilee Basin, Queensland.
The corporation is yet to secure substantial financing for the controversial project, but says initial works will begin later this month.
The firm was criticised this week by former Indian environment minister Jairam Ramesh, who told the ABC he was appalled by the Australian government’s decision to approve the multi-billion dollar mine proposal and questioned the miner’s environmental track record.
In its response, Adani said it operated within the law and defended its environmental record, citing cases currently before India’s Supreme Court.
The concerns came at the release of analysis by The Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, which details extensive financial risks to the project.
