Last quote by Jo-Anne Bragg
I think it is a watershed because it is so rare a group of landholders and locals can win against a big, well-resourced mining company. Without this land court objection process and without having a non-profit community legal centre to help these landholders go through this terrible battle, such a win wouldn't have been possible.feedback

They lobbied politicians from all parties in Queensland to have a special case made for Adani Carmichael, even though other Mega Galilee mines … do need to have public submissions and appeals. Really it's just shocking that the Queensland community won't have an opportunity on the merits to scrutinise this associated water licence with groundwater experts and point out the weaknesses in this licence.feedback

Proper court scrutiny of decisions made about massive projects such as Adani's Carmichael mine are important because they build community confidence in the planning system, help guard against corruption and result in better environmental assessments and outcomes.feedback
