Coal Blimey! An Anti-Adani Fundraiser

Fundraising for the Wangan & Jagalingou Traditional Owners Family Council and the Australian Conversation Foundation, Coal Blimey! brings together talented Melbourne musicians and DJs in the name of standing up against the proposed Carmichael coal mine in Queensland.

Controversial Indian energy conglomerate the Adani Group proposed a $22-billion mine, the largest new mine of its kind, that would pose not only environmental destruction but that denies the traditional owners of the land, the Wangan & Jagalingou people, the right to practice their customs and culture on their sacred land. Currently, the mine is the focus of an ongoing legal battle between Adani and the Wangan & Jagalingou Family Council. Read Roj Amedi’s interview with W&J Family Council representative Murrawah Maroochy Johnson here.

Tickets to Coal Blimey! are $16 with 100% of funds raised going to Wangan & Jagalingou Family Council and the Australian Conversation Foundation. Head to Eventbrite to grab your ticket.
