To: The Hon. Sussan Ley MP, Minister for the Environment (dated 11 January, 2020)
We are writing to you to express our opposition to the Adani Coal Mine and to urge the Federal Government to take action to halt its development, pursuant to the 1992 Intergovernmental Agreement on the Environment.
The current bushfires are, unquestionably, a tipping point for environmental policy in Australia. We speak as bushfire evacuees, having driven first from Eden to Canberra, and then on to Frankston South in Victoria. The impact on our immediate family is also extensive – between us we have homes in Eden, Boydtown, Wonboyn, Nowra, Cobungra and Canberra, all of which have been affected or are still threatened by the bushfires.
