THOU­SANDS of peo­ple have protested In­dian min­ing gi­ant Adani’s plans to dig a new ther­mal coal mine in Queens­land and have called on state and fed­eral gov­ern­ments as well as the fed­eral op­po­si­tion to stop it go­ing ahead.

Protesters marched in Mel­bourne, Syd­ney, Bris­bane and Cairns just a week af­ter 15,000 school stu­dents demon­strated against gov­ern­ment in­ac­tion on cli­mate change. It fol­lows the an­nounce­ment last month by Adani it would self-fund the con­tro­ver­sial project af­ter scal­ing back its size and scope.
