Musicians across the country are rising with First Peoples and countless others to say NO to Adani’s coal mine. Shaping up to be the fight of our lifetime, if built this mega mine will create up to 4.6 billion tonnes of carbon pollution. Now’s the time to raise your voice and join the fight!
Musicians Against Adani.
No doubt you know about the planned Adani coal mine set to take stage in our precious Galilee Basin? It would be the largest export coal mine in Australia and would impact 28,000 hectares of land, an area more than five times that of Sydney Harbour. This megamine is at odds with protecting the planet against a climate crisis. We're asking musicians across our country to stand tall with the ground swell of Australians who have decided enough is enough. No new coal.
Green Music Australia has a dedicated coordinator who works with musicians across the country who do not want this mine to go ahead. We put musicians in touch with groups across the country, to turn up to rallies, to perform, to wear the shirts, and show their fans that Adani can’t win.
If you’re a musician wanting to get on board, or an event organiser wanting to engage with musicians, we want to hear from you. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can see below the amazing artists who are against this development.
“People are coming together to draw a line in the sand with Adani, just as previous generations did with the Franklin River dam. In fact, the Stop Adani campaign reminds me of the Franklin in many ways, the level of passion and commitment will turn this into a nationwide showdown”, Dr. Bob Brown
Green Music Australia Ambassador Missy Higgins has narrated this wonderful short film.
“We here at the Frenzal Rhomb Company wholeheartedly support the Stop Adani declaration. It seems ludicrous to us that we should allow one of the largest and environmentally destructive mines in the world to be built at all in the face of the dangers of climate change, but also in a place that will negatively affect Indigenous land owners and do further harm to the Great Barrier Reef. We just want to try and leave a nice place for our kids.. our drummer’s got heaps! ”
“My name is Luke O’Shea – an Australian singer songwriter, school teacher and father of three.
I am writing to express my sincere, and complete support for the Stop Adani Alliance Declaration.
I want the government and the people of Australia to rise up and do their very best to protect this magnificent country of ours and to ensure its many treasures – such as the Great Barrier Reef – are there for the hundreds of generations still to come.
Australians must demand our leaders to lead the charge with our commitment to renewable energy; and together we can and must -stop- the proposed Adani Carmichael coal mine”
“My name is Didirri, and I firmly acknowledge that coal is not the future of our planet. Introducing more large coal mines is not sustainable both economically and ecologically. We have so many renewable options available to us as a developed nation, if only we would focus our efforts. Please join me and everyone at Green Music Australia in a conversation about our future and sustainability”
“In our times, there is no need to fall back on dirty coal for electricity. It is the responsibility of our generation to create the pressure against the uncooperative elements of society and our unethical politicians. It is the only way we will see a change towards a sustainable way of life”, CHINA BEACH
“I strongly oppose the Carmichael mine because I value our climate, our reefs and our environment for future generations to be able to survive and thrive.” Little Wise
