Murrawah Johnson, a young Indigenous woman from Australia’s Wangan and Jagalingou Family Council and People, has caused a myriad of legal and financial problems for one mining consortium. With the help of the Seed Youth Indigenous Climate Network, she embarked on an 18-day world tour to meet with the international banks funding the mine to personally convince them to back out of the Adani Group’s proposed open-pit Carmichael Mine, which would have been Australia’s largest-ever coal mine. Fifteen pulled their support, rendering the project dead in its tracks. The Wangan and Jagalingou are the traditional owners of the land and rivers in the area, and trace their heritage back 60,000 years. Photo credit: Grist
