Call for solidarity with Wangan and Jagalingou

On August 26 the Wangan and Jagalingou tribal warriors delivered an official eviction notice to Adani for illegally trespassing on Country.

For 5 days, the Wangan and Jagalingou people enforced this eviction notice by the blocking the road to the Adani site. However on Friday, instead of arranging a promised meeting with the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships, the Queensland police did Adani’s bidding and forced the land defenders to move from the road.

Wangan and Jagalingou people have said that this is just the beginning of their resistance to Adani. They will return and continue to enforce the eviction to protect their homeland. 

They have launched Standing Our Ground and are calling on us to support them. Here’s what you can do right now:

Flood the phone lines and call on Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and her Government to pull back the police force.

Adrian Burragubba told the media that “We, the original Wangan and Jagalingou people, believe that it is our inalienable right given to us by our ancestors, to oppose the compulsory acquisition of all our lands and waters within our borders. As tribal warriors we will fight to defend our sovereignty and territorial integrity."
