May 04, 2021
The Tour de Carmichael kicks off - a 105-km cycle ride to protect W&J ancestral lands against Adani's coal mine
More than 100 people have embarked on the Tour de Carmichael – a 105-km cycle for Country through sacred Wangan & Jagalingou homelands to Adani’s Carmichael coal mine site, led by Wangan & Jagalingou man, Coedie MacAvoy, son of Cultural Custodian Uncle Adrian Burragubba.
For the next 5 days, Coedie is leading a guided tour through Wangan & Jagalingou Country, sharing stories, culture, sites and totems, and exposing Adani’s destruction of W&J land and water first-hand.
The Queensland Government stole Wangan and Jagalingou land, extinguished native title, and handed it over to mining giant Adani to dig their dirty coal mine. The Wangan & Jagalingou people assert their obligation to protect our homelands and culture. They remain determined to protect Country.
