URGENT: The Queensland Government is ready to extinguish Wangan Jagalingou native title for Adani



This is urgent!

The Queensland Government is ready to extinguish our Native Title rights.

Adani is trying to push through an illegitimate land use agreement and extinguish our native title. We have a Federal Court case to challenge it it March, and have filed for an injunction to prevent them moving to have our rights extinguished before then.

We asked the Government to promise that they wouldn’t act to extinguish our native title until the Federal Court heard our case. And they just refused.

That means they could move to extinguish our native title rights at any time.

And with Minister Anthony Lynham back in his seat, we expect him and Adani to act before our hearing, and slam native title extinguishment through!

Our native title rights are hanging in the balance. This is a race against time.


Write to or call Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, Deputy Premier Jackie Trad, and Minister for Mines Anthony Lynham, and demand they respect the judicial process and refuse to act to extinguish any Wangan and Jagalingou native title before the injunction is dealt with this week and the court hears our case against the ILUA in March:

Premier Palaszczuk – (07) 3719 7000 – thepremier@premiers.qld.gov.au

Deputy Premier Trad – (07) 3719 7100 – deputy.premier@ministerial.qld.gov.au

Minister Lynham – (07) 3719 7360 – sdnrm@ministerial.qld.gov.au

Please share this widely – send it to as many people as you can. We must let the Government know that any credit they get for vetoing the loan to Adani will be wiped out if they extinguish Wangan and Jagalingou peoples’ native title for Adani’s mine on our country.

Thank you for being there for us at this urgent time.
