Dear WEPA Members,
I hope you can join us for our first WEPA Zoom event coming up on Tuesday 29 September 2020 (7:00pm – 8:30pm): a premiere screening of People power vs Adani – the fight of our times.
WEPA will be hosting the film and speakers as a fund-raising event for the Stop Adani campaign. You can register for free or make a donation of either $10 or $20 via the ticket process. All proceeds from the film night will be donated to the Wangan & Jagalingou Family Council to support their ongoing resistance to Adani.
We need you to register now so we can send you the Zoom link closer to the night – you can do that either by:

Then Scroll down and click on ‘Find Tickets’ and that will take you through a quick process to choose donation or free ticket
• Cutting and pasting wepaadani.eventbrite.com.au into your search engine and clicking on ‘tickets’.
Don’t worry if you are new to Zoom. We will send you all a ‘How to Zoom sheet’ closer to the event.
If this online event goes well – and members find it an efficient and enjoyable way to get together while we are all social distancing – then we will continue with the online format for our public meetings until it is safe to meet face to face once again.
More About this Event
In August 2010 billionaire mining giant Adani bought a licence to dig the biggest coal mine in Australia’s history, in central Queensland on the land of the Wangan and Jagalingou people. Adani planned to start shipping coal out through the Great Barrier Reef in 2014 and burn it in their Indian power plants. 10 years later Adani are yet to dig a single lump of Australian coal.
What’s been stopping Adani? People power!
People power vs Adani – the fight of our times features interviews with Wangan & Jagalingou cultural leader Adrian Burragubba, school striker Manjot Kaur, and grassroots leaders from across the #StopAdani movement. The film explores what people power has achieved in stopping Adani so far, how we can stop Adani from here, and why winning this fight is more important now than ever before.
We are looking forward to seeing you all online.
