Activist groups around the country are preparing to defend the Wangan Jagalingou lands in the Galilee Basin from coal mines.

The recently approved Adani mine will provide less than 1,500 jobs and will consume 12 billion litres of water each year and create a hole in the ground 64 square kilometres in size.

Direct action on the site will not commence until initiated by local First Nations people.

A group known as Galilee Blockade is coordinating actions around the country, Get Up, World Wildlife Foundation, The Greens and Greenpeace have all announced their support for the Wangan and Jagalingou people, setting up petitions and running advertising campaigns.

The Cage encourages people to directly support the Wangan Jagalingou people as much as possible.
