When Adani Group announced plans to dig Australia’s largest coal mine ever, the open-pit Carmichael Mine, the mining consortium underestimated the power of the Wangan and Jagalingou Family Council and People who are the traditional owners of the land for 60,000 years. Murrawah Johnson and her uncle Adrian Burragubba embarked on an 18-day world tour to meet with the international banks funding the mine to convince them to back out. As a result of their efforts, fifteen of the world’s top 20 fossil fuel investors pulled support for the mine. Murrawah Johnson has been characterised as one of the most dynamic climate activists as she is always on the front line of holding back the largest proposed coal mine in the world.
