Thanks to all for making Adani a key Batman election issue

By Blair Palese  Last night we saw a close race in Melbourne’s seat of Batman with Labor’s Ged Kearney ultimately winning the day. It’s been an incredible six weeks of campaigning with the battle to stop the Adani coal project a major issue on the election agenda thanks to the hard work and amazing effort of hundreds of concerned volunteers.

350 Australia, Adani and the Batman by-election

By Glen Klatovsky Over the last six weeks, 350 Australia has been working with the people of Batman to highlight the issue of the the proposed Adani coal mine. Hundreds of locals have been getting active as their passion for climate protection comes to the fore. People have asked why the Adani issue is relevant in inner-city Melbourne — far from Queensland’s Galilee Basin where the mine would be located.

More than three quarters of Batman residents want to #StopAdani

According to last week’s 7:30 Report, Adani’s mine has become the number one issue in the election campaign, with more than three quarters of Batman residents opposed to the project, and two thirds of all Australians. That’s why Northcote resident of 34 years, Mary Crooks AO, a Financial Review and Westpac 100 Women of Influence Award winner, is speaking out against Adani. “Where the parties stand on Adani’s mine will be the issue that decides my vote at this Saturday’s election,” she said.
