Anti-Adani NSW protest outside Australian ECA office

(The Australian, Sydney, 29 June 2018)  Protesters worried about potential taxpayer funding of Adani's mega-mine in central Queensland have picketed the Sydney offices of Australia's export credit agency. About 40 Frontline Action on Coal activists on Friday demanded to meet with the boss of the Export Finance and Investment Corporation. They chanted "money for health and education, not for mining corporations" and unfurled a large banner reading "No Future In Coal #NoNewCoal" before being moved on by NSW Police after an hour. The group claim federal Trade Minister Steven Ciobo has directed EFIC to assess "putting public money" behind the Indian mining giant's proposed thermal coalmine.
