SPECIAL EVENT: Adani and the War Over Coal
Hobart Town Hall, 50 Macquarie Street, Hobart
30 August 2018, 17.30 – 18.30PM
The former journalist who gave us The Rise and Fall of Gunns Ltd picks up many of the same themes here in his new book; in particular: the industrialisation of nature, which in the case of Adani has turned into large-scale activism across the country.
The #stopadani movement is the biggest mass protest in Australian history, larger than that of the Vietnam War. Quentin Beresford will discuss the issues raised in his new work, including; native title concerns, the decision of the big banks to refuse to fund the project, the role of Indian industrialist Gautam Adani, and why politicians like Annastasia Palaszczuk were so eager to offer so many concessions to the Indian firm.
Quentin will be in conversation with Bob Brown at Hobart Town Hall.
