Just moments ago, Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt made a decision that will have a huge impact on life on Earth.
He approved Adani's giant Carmichael Coal Mine - a move that blows apart global efforts to cut pollution and threatens life locally and globally.
It's reckless and irresponsible and shows a blatant disregard for the community.
But most of all it's senseless to prop up a dirty, dying industry while the rest of Australia and the world races to a bright future powered by clean energy.
We'll be doing everything we can to stop this mine and hold the government to account. And we'll be bringing people together for the biggest rally the world has ever seen ahead of November's global climate meeting. Will you stand with us?
If you're already coming, tell your friends and family. We're stronger when we stand together!
Where our federal government is failing, Australian states, cities and towns are embracing industries that support life, not destroy it.
South Australia and the ACT are leading the country on clean energy. Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide are racing to cut pollution.
Even regional towns like Lismore are racing ahead with a goal of 100 percent clean energy in 10 years.
Poll after poll shows Australians want clean air and water, a healthy Reef and a future powered by sun, wind and waves.
And countries around the world, from China, to the Netherlands to the USA all the way to Costa Rica are taking great leaps to leave the dirty energy of the past behind and embrace the clean energy of the future.
Minister Hunt should never have approved this mine. It's clear our environment laws are not strong enough to protect our air, water and wildlife from big polluters.
If it goes ahead, this one mine will add more pollution to global warming than the whole of New Zealand, drain billions of litres of precious groundwater, irreversibly damage our Reef and drive threatened wildlife like the Southern Black-throated Finch further towards extinction.
Don't be disheartened. We can stop this. Community power is achieving incredible things.
Minister Hunt's decision is so outrageous it will only drive more public support for cutting pollution and building a new generation of environment laws that properly protect our air, water, wildlife and the places we love.
Soon we'll power all of our cities and homes with 100 percent clean energy from the sun, wind and waves. Strong laws will protect life, our air will be cleaner and we'll restore land and water damaged by old mines.
We'll scrutinise this approval and do everything we can to make sure this disastrous mine is never built. We'll dance, sing and march in the streets to call for cuts to pollution. And we'll escalate our campaign for a new generation of environment laws.
When our government fails in its duty of care, it's up to all of us to hold them to account. Together, let's create the kind of world that embraces life, not destroys it.
We are marching because we know we can change the world when we work together. We want our politicians to listen to our communities and help us build a brighter and fairer future for all. Will you stand with us?
