BREAKING: Police have arrested 10 people who took part in front-line protests at Abbott Point earlier today.
The protesters are trying to stop the commencement of the highly controversial Adani mega coal mine. Adani is planning to begin construction of the mega mine as early as next month.
The Front Line Action on coal group is calling on more people to to Abbott point (Just north of Bowen, QLD) to join the front line protests which they vow to continue. The fact that Adani has reached this point, exposes huge injustices and points to more corruption from government and big business. The Indian mining group faced huge set backs from Banks refusing to fund the project as well as court decisions that derailed the project completely. Somehow though, Adani appears to be above the law and is now in the final stages of planning before construction begins.

There are very real concerns by Indigenous groups, farmers, environment experts and the general public in the region and beyond, about the impacts this mine will have on the local environment as well as the Great Barrier Reef.
It looks like this front line has all the ingredients to become Australia’s version of the Standing Rock, Dakota Access Pipeline protests seen in America last year. Will you be joining the protests?
