Climate Change Australian Hastings said it was going to be big. And, boy, wasn’t it a success.
On Saturday, hundreds of people turned out to form the biggest human sign event ever attempted in the area on Port Macquarie’s Town Beach. The action had a simple task: to Stop Adani, says the group’s spokesperson, Harry Creamer.
“We wanted as many people to turn up so we could send a message to our politicians to show our opposition to this plan,” he said.
The Port Macquarie-Hasting action event was part of a wider event across several communities.
Mr Creamer said the massive human sign is a creative display of opposition to this dirty coal mine and the controversial $1 billion of public money it could receive.
“We’re going to spell it out for our politicians, we want them to Stop Adani,” he added.
Adani's $22 billion Carmichael mine will be built west of Rockhampton, and once completed will be Australia’s largest coal mine.
