Thousands to join #StopAdani online global rally calling on insurance broker Marsh to dump Adani’s Carmichael coal project
Those who would stop the Adani coal project say they are undeterred by the challenges presented by the COVID-19 global lock down. Climate campaigners in Australia and the USA will join forces today at 10am (AEST) for the biggest online rally in Australia’s history.
The global rally will call on Adani’s insurance broker Marsh – the largest insurance broker in the world – to rule out arranging insurance for the Carmichael coal mine and other fossil fuel projects.
The rally precedes the Marsh Annual General Meeting on May 21 in New York, where the company is expected to announce a new climate policy.
Over 3,500 people have registered to attend the jointly organised by Australian and US climate campaigners. Speakers at the event include US and Australian campaigners, School Strike for Climate organisers and a wildlife rescuer accompanied by his wallabies which survived NSW bushfires.
Rally participants will take part in a huge online chant and a giant group screenshot. Attendees will wear red #StopAdani clothing, paint faces with #StopAdani messages, hold #MarshDumpAdani placards with creative backgrounds and messages to Marsh.
Creative actions including a volunteer calling on loudspeaker President and CEO of Marsh and McLennan companies, Daniel Glaser, tweeting selfies with the hashtag #MarshDumpAdani and leaving thousands of comments on Marsh’s social media accounts will also take place.
