Stand with the Wangan & Jagalingou people

At any moment, the Queensland Government could extinguish Wangan and Jagalingou native title rights in the Galilee Basin – the land Adani wants to build their Carmichael mega mine on. [1]

The Wangan and Jagalingou (W&J) Family Council have already said NO to Adani four times and are in the midst of a court battle to protect their country. [2]

It’s urgent: in the last few days, the newly elected Queensland Government was asked by W&J to give assurance that they would not extinguish native title until the Federal court case, but the Queensland Government has refused to make this commitment. [3]

This means they could trample Indigenous rights at any moment.

Can you stand with the Wangan and Jagalingou people and make a phone call to tell the Queensland Government not to extinguish native title under any circumstances? Read more on the W&J website.

Make a call now:

Premier Palaszczuk – (07) 3719 7000 –

Deputy Premier Trad – (07) 3719 7100 –

Minister Lynham – (07) 3719 7360 –

Call on the Queensland Government to:

  • Under no circumstances extinguish the native title of the W&J people. There is a Federal Court case being heard in March challenging the Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) that Adani and Qld Government are signatories to.
  • Speak directly to the W&J Traditional Owners who do not give consent for the mine. The W&J claim group have four times voted against Adani’s ILUA. Traditional Owners have not consented to the construction of the mine on their land. [4]

The Wangan and Jagalingou Traditional Owners are fighting to defend their lands and culture from Adani and the Queensland and Commonwealth Governments. Let’s stand with them at this critical moment.
