TURNBULLL: STOP THE MINE
NO CASH FOR COAL

TURNBULLL: STOP THE MINE
NO CASH FOR COAL.

REEF AT RISK

The Turnbull Government could hand out $1billion of taxpayer money to kick-start the Reef-destroying Carmichael coal project in North Queensland: the mega-mine that will fuel dangerous global warming and send thousands of huge coal ships ploughing through the Great Barrier Reef.

The decision to lend the money rests with the board members of a government body - the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF). NAIF was created by the Prime Minister in 2016 and has been endowed with $5 billion of taxpayer money to fund projects in Northern Australia. Rather than spending billions of dollars on much need schools and hospitals for Northern Australia, the NAIF board are considering funding projects that will fuel catastrophic climate change and wreck the Great Barrier Reef.


WHAT WE KNOW

  • The Turnbull Government has said that the NAIF board is an ‘independent’ body but our research shows that five of seven board members have strong ties to the mining industry.
  • The Project fails to meet at least two mandatory criteria for receiving funds through the NAIF. A truly independent Board would rule out this project immediately.
  • 75% of Australians would prefer taxpayer money spent on renewable energy projects.

With your help we can expose this dodgy deal and make sure that no taxpayer money is spent on this disastrous coal project. Join the campaign now.

THE GOVERNMENT'S BROKEN PROMISE

During the election campaign, Malcolm Turnbull made a promise that there would be no public funding for Adani’s mega coal projects.

But he has broken that promise and now wants to offer a $1billon loan through his publicly funded slush fund. Already the government has granted the projected uncapped access to water from the Great Artesian Basin for the next 60 years, despite the fact that nearly 90% of Queensland is in drought.

MALCOLM TURNBULL IS NOW CONSIDERING BREAKING HIS PROMISE BY OFFERING YOUR TAX DOLLARS TO FUND THE REEF WRECKING PROJECT.

The rail line will take coal from Carmichael to the port at Abbot Point, next to the Great Barrier Reef. Coal export shipments through the Reef would rise dramatically.

Back-to-back severe bleaching events have affected two-thirds of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. The mining and burning of coal will only put the Reef in more danger.

WHY WE CAN STOP THIS

Together, we’ve been fighting to stop this disastrous megamine for five years - and we’ve been winning. Without us, Carmichael would have been a done deal years ago. This $1billion is the final roll of the dice for this sinking project - this decision is either the beginning or the end for the Carmichael mega-mine. You can help stop this project, once and for all. 

Australians don't support this project
