Anti-Adani campaigners held a protest at the Tradelink plumbing store in Byron this week, urging locals to boycott the company over its connection to the controversial coal mine.
Tradelink Plumbing Centres are owned by Fletcher Building, a New Zealand company currently bidding to supply construction materials for the Carmichael mine.
The protesters ranged from families with young children through to 97-year-old Kokoda veteran Bill Ryan.
The action was part of a nation-wide string of actions targeting the company over its bid to work for Adani.
Ben Pennings, a spokesperson for Galilee Blockade, said most Australians did not want the Adani mine to go ahead and called on people to boycott Tradelink until Fletcher Building ‘gets out of bed with Adani’.
‘Thermal coal will become the asbestos of the future,’ Mr Pennings said.
‘Every single company with a retail brand, including banks and insurance companies, have listened to the public and dumped Adani.
‘Industrial contractors have retail brands too. Fletcher Building want to provide key construction materials for Adani but risk the reputation of their brands like Tradelink and Laminex.’
