The Queensland Premier has signed a secretive royalties deal with Adani which looks set to hand them hundreds of millions of dollars in public funds as a 'loan' for the first 5 years of their mine in Central Queensland.

No special deals for Adani!

Send an email now to Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and tell her you won't accept any special deals for Adani.  Taxpayers shouldn't be bankrolling Adani - there must be no royalties deferral and no $1billion loan from the Northern Australia Infrastructure Fund.
