Wangan and Jagalingou Tribal WarriorsMonday, 24 August 2020 - 9:00am to Sunday, 31 January 2021 - 12:00am Wangan and Jagalingou Homelands
We are the Wangan and Jagalingou Tribal Warriors — the original sovereign people of a vast area of unceded land in the Galilee Basin in central-western Queensland. We are acting to protect our land and water from Adani’s Carmichael Coal Mine that interferes with our ancient law and custom. We are tribal warriors and we are #StandingOurGround
Right now Adani are destroying our culture and country. Soon they’ll start draining the water table and digging their mine. That’s going to drain the life out of our country and kill our dreaming. Adani have given us no choice but to intervene to protect our land, water and culture. This eviction notice marks the start of a new phase of our resistance to Adani’s destruction.
We’re calling this new campaign Standing our Ground, because we intend to stand our ground to defend our rights as First Nations people.
On 20 August, Wangan and Jagalingou delegates delivered an eviction notice to the manager of Adani’s Carmichael mine site instructing Adani and its contractors to leave our Country immediately.
On 24 August Wangan and Jagalingou warriors shut the main road to Adani’s Carmichael Coal Mine site to protect home lands from Adani’s irreversible destruction.
