Responding to Adani’s reported delay of their investment decision, the Australian Greens say this proves Adani are international bullies.
“Adani has thrown a tantrum to bully the Queensland Labor government into handing over $320 million of free coal, says Deputy Leader of the Australian Greens and Queensland Senator Larissa Waters.
“So far, Adani is in line for a $1 billion handout, unlimited free water, new legal loopholes, special changes to Native Title, a free pass on Reef destruction.
“Now they are throwing their weight around trying to squeeze $320 million of free coal from the State Labor government.
“Malcolm Turnbull and Queensland Labor need to stand up to these bullies, veto the $1 billion handout, say no to giving them freebies at the taxpayers’ expense and abandon their support for this mega- mine".
