That would be very good news for the Aboriginal people fighting to protect their sacred land! Thanks Evelyn.

The Abroriginal people's campaign, and petitions, were so important - not only because they are RIGHT, they have rights they should be able to assert, but also because, at last, they know that they are not alone! What delight it was to see the numbers of supporters going up, and up, and up !!!

But they are not the only group calling for an end to this insane set of linked projects .... the groups linked to international organisations have fought the Port Abbott expansion, because of the dangers to the Great Barrier Reef. I could wish that they worked closer with the indigenous people in the area ..... defending also their rights, their sustainable lifestyle .... But they almost entirely overlooked the human rights aspect in their battle for Austalian heritage & the environment ....

Right now, the battle is not definitely won - as far as I've seen, there has not yet been a definitive withdrawal of Adani .... vigilance is still needed. But it is looking hopeful.

And next time (yes, I fear there will be a next time), hopefully, the Aboriginal peoples will have more faith in their capacity to mobilise support .... and the NGOs linked to international movements will make more effort to link to Indigenous People's rights as well as appealing to the environmental activists ....

Have signed the petitions and get updates Ros. Being part Native brings their campaign close to home.

I hope the whole project crashes! It should never have even been considered. Thanks Evelyn.

Adani is just another 1%er looking for projects to destroy humanity and the environment. It is amazing to me how blinded the 1%ers are. Can't they think about the future need for renewal energy projects? That is where the money is and is going to be. How ignorant and blinded by the past the wealthy are....

Shared on facebook and twittersphere.

So, profit was essentially the sole motivating force and guiding factor.
