Invite to Wills MP Peter Khalil to oppose Adani coal mine

Climate Action Moreland visited Wills MP Peter Khalil’s office today to deliver a letter inviting his public support for opposing the Adani coal mine. At the moment Westpac bank have anounced a more detailed policy on export coal in keeping with the Paris Agreement climate targets and transition to a zero carbon economy than both the Liberal National Party Government and the opposition Labor Party.

The Labor party needs to stop sitting on the fence and oppose the mine on both commercial and climate grounds.

Moreland Says #StopAdani: outside Westpac then Commbank Coburg on May 12

Climate Action Moreland has joined the #StopAdani campaign(1) under the name Moreland Says #StopAdani.

We will be holding an action outside the Coburg Westpac branch (482 Sydney Rd) on Friday May 12 from 12.30pm to say thankyou to Westpac for adopting a climate policy, while not perfect, effectively rules out funding the Adani Carmichael mine and any Galilee Basin mines.
(Facebook Event)

We intend to follow this with a protest outside of CommBank Coburg branch. The Commonwealth Bank still has no policy that explicitly rules out new fossil fuel projects including the Adani project. The bank has been silent on funding Adani.

After making our presence felt outside Commbank, we will march to Peter Khalil’s office (if he doesn’t attend).

Our aims are two fold:

  • to put pressure on CommBank to publicly commit not to fund Adani’s coal project, and
  • for our Federal Labor MP Peter Khalil to come out in public opposition to Adani’s coal project

We are seeking endorsements from local groups. Endorsing groups will be invited to provide a speaker at this event.

In Moreland we are asking our Federal MP to help #stopAdani

What every Federal MP needs: concerned citizens lobbying them on climate


A little friendly protest will take place outside the electorate office for Wills MP, Peter Khalil
When: Friday 17 March at 1.30pm at 3 Munro St, Coburg.
Join us for a while if you are in the local area.

We think all our Federal MPs and Senators should be working to stop the Adani Carmichael coal mine from going ahead.

Peter Khalil has already signed the Climate Emergency declaration and is making climate change one of his 6 focus areas.

The Carmichaeol coal mine is a huge carbon bomb. Once built it will lead to coal extraction, transport to the coast, across the Great Barrier Reef, to coal plants across Asia adding to greenhouses gases and climate change. If it goes ahead it would effectively counter any emissions reduction we make with renewables or energy efficiency or waste reduction.

Federal Labor MP for Batman David Feeney signed the climate emergency petition this morning outside his office in Preston. Former Federal MP for Wills, Kelvin Thomson, was also present and signed the petition.

The occasion was a protest organised by Darebin Climate Action Now, but also involving members of Climate Action Moreland, to demand Federal Labor show leadership by saying no to the Adani Carmichael mine in Queensland. The mine will have a devastating effect on the Great Barrier Reef and a mind-blowing contribution to the climate emergency.

Climate Action Moreland members were there.

Stop brown coal allocation and export from Victoria – 10 Dec 2013

Currently 13 billion tonnes of brown coal is being considered for allocation by the Napthine Liberal National Party state Government, despite the impact of this in carbon emissions on climate change and increasing temperatures and extreme weather. As well as the allocation of coal licences, $90 million of Federal and State subsidies are also up for grab. Does subsidising brown coal make sense when we should rapidly be transitioning to renewables?

Climate Action Moreland members attended this rally. More information from Environment Victoria No Coal Exports webpage.
