Labor buckle to Adani and betray Queenslanders

Media Release
Larissa Waters 9 Nov 2016

The Australian Greens are outraged that the Queensland Labor Government has caved in to Adani by weakening new groundwater laws so Adani won’t have to apply for a water license.

“Queensland Labor were elected to ‘save the Reef’ but instead they’ve caved in to big coal creating loopholes to put Adani’s Reef-destroying mega-mine on the fast track,” said Australian Greens Deputy Leader and Senator for Queensland, Larissa Waters.

“With this decision the Queensland government is condemning the Reef to worse bleaching and jeopardising the 70,000 jobs it provides.

“This government should honour its commitment to voters and invest in job-rich, clean energy that doesn’t drive dangerous global warming, trash groundwater or place our already fragile Reef in further jeopardy”.
