Adrian Burragubba, a traditional owner of Wangan and Jagalangou people, made himself bankrupt by the actions of Adani for protecting his country.
It made me sick to hear that’s what happened to a First-nation Australian by an overseas Indian company. $600,000 for Adani’s legal costs is a shame and the regimes in Brisbane and Canberra should hang their heads in shame for giving Adani the go-ahead with this crime against our natural environment.
Not only against flora and fauna and traditional lands but to allow more fossil fuel to be generated into the atmosphere when we should be stopping it and using renewable energy sources. How the hell is Australia going to meet its submission targets if this mine goes ahead? It won’t.
It’s a joke and the jokers in Brisbane and Canberra should be voted out ASAP next elections. We need to change from the current form of running this country, eg becoming a sovereign nation sooner rather than later.
