 Just days before our court case was due to kick off, the Morrison Government has conceded defeat, and admitted they failed to apply their own laws when assessing Adani’s plan to suck-up billions of litres of Queensland’s water.

They finally admit they missed some pretty crucial material: over 2,000 public submissions. And it turns out they actually lost an unknown number more. They cut so many corners in rushing to approve Adani’s mine, they had to reverse-engineer a ‘decision record’, which they then revised four times to make it look less shoddy. Their decision making process was a complete farce. 

Government decision makers have a fundamental obligation to carefully consider all materials, especially when assessing gigantic projects that will suck billions of litres of groundwater from this drought-stricken continent.

This is a complete failure of government decision making.

This court case is not the end of the Adani story, unfortunately. We expect the Morrison Government will try to push through the approvals again. But now they must go back to the drawing board on the pipeline assessment, redo the public submissions process and follow their own laws. 

No-one ever said that taking on nature-wrecking corporations in the most profitable industry in history would be easy.

That’s why need a whole movement of people, coordinated, passionate, pushing forward together, all over Australia. 

We will scrutinise every plan, every process, every decision. We’ll look at every legitimate option to stop this mine

When bad decisions are made on coal and climate, we will litigate. And if you want to be a part of it, you can contribute to our legal fund so we can make this happen.
