Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF) lodges appeal against Federal Court’s approval of giant Adani coal mine "IndyWatch Feed Enviro.au"

coal CarmichaelMine219 September 2016  “The Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF) has lodged an appeal to the Federal Court’s decision which found the approval of Adani’s Carmichael coal mine to be lawful.

“ACF disputes the Environment Minister’s argument in court that the burning of coal from Carmichael mine will not have an impact on global warming and the Great Barrier Reef.

““This is a profound moment in the history of protecting Australia’s environment, as we attempt to stop a coal mine that would create 4.6 billion tonnes of climate pollution if it is allowed to proceed,” said ACF’s President Geoff Cousins.

““Australia’s system of environment laws is broken if it allows the Federal Environment Minister to approve a mega-polluting coal mine – the biggest in Australia’s history – and claim it will have no impact on the global warming and the reef.

““If our environment laws are too weak to actually protect Australia’s unique species and places,they effectively give companies like Adani a licence to kill.

““Be in no doubt, Adani’s Carmichael proposal is massive and will lock in decades of damaging climate pollution if it goes ahead, further wrecking the reef. … “

Greens parliament funding activist thugs cairnsnews.org


This email was sent to the Greens on 6th June 2016 yet to receive a reply.

Dear Senators Lee Rhiannon and Richard Di Natale,

It has come to my attention that there are TWO community groups in Australia that are currently being supported financially (via poster printing) by Senator Lee Rhiannon that could be considered unworthy of any style of support in a civilised society.

The activities of these groups, which share the same logo and most likely the same people, fall so short of community expectations as to be regarded as scandalous.

The activities of these two groups are -slander, theft, assault and attempted murder.

Posters bearing the words “authorised by Senator Lee Rhiannon” & “printed by Senator Lee Rhiannon – Parliament House, Canberra ACT…..” have been seen and photographed around numerous suburbs, not only myself and people I am associated with but also by members of the general public for both groups.

The posters from the second group I have only recently had confirmation of, which is the reason in the delay in dealing with this matter.

The first group is anti fascist action sydney, who have a web page https://antifascistactionsydney.wordpress.com which is comprised of smear and rather feeble attempts at Alinsky style ridicule.

Because WordPress is in the US, legal action would be difficult.

If it were an Australian IP, slander charges would have a good chance of success.

Although the web page could be regarded as childish, and probably anyone with a bit of intelligence would see it as baseless smear and deliberate tarnishing of reputations, it does breach what normal people would regard as falling within societal norms.

In particular, myself being accused of assault, when in fact ( and it is a matter of police record), it was in fact MYSELF who was assaulted, is totally unacceptable slander.

Please explain: – Why has Senator Lee Rhiannon NOT checked the activities of this group, to ensure they fall/operate within the expectations of the broader community before providing taxpayer funded support?

I do recognise that it is all lawful that political groups can provide some material support for community groups who are on their wavelength.

However, to the normal reasonable thinking person, if anti fascist action sydney are on the wavelength of ANY member of the Australian Parliament, this should certainly be sounding the alarm bells.

The second group that has had posters authorized and printed by Senator Lee Rhiannon is the group Antifa. This group CLAIMS to fight racism and be anti-fascist.

These two claims are quite dubious and their modus operandi is even more dubious.

A quote – attributed to Sir Winston Churchill –“The fascists of the future will call themselves anti fascists” well describes the violence with facial/ identity concealment that this group is well known for. This is a matter of video record by Channel 9 news from both the recent Bendigo and Coburg rally events.

The behaviour of Antifa is what one would expect from Hitler’s Brownshirts.

The anti-racism guise:- Antifa typically attacks persons/groups that oppose the influence of radical Islam in Australia. The guise of “racism” is spurious.

Please explain- What race is Islam?

This is a crucial question-...
