We’ve all seen plenty of those red stop-sign inspired “#Stop Adani” logos splashed across placards, stickers and billboards.
Now someone backing the highly controversial Carmichael mega-mine and rail line has turned that protest on its head.
Sentinel Property boss Warren Ebert took to the streets of Brisbane’s CBD yesterday with nearly a dozen of his employees, all of them clad in white T-shirts with a “#Start Adani” logo coloured in the bright green of a go signal.
Staking out the high ground, Ebert claimed he was part of the “silent majority” backing the $2 billion project and called on the State Government to provide more support to make it happen.
“This would lift the spirits of people in Townsville and throughout north Queensland,” he said.
“This project will provide thousands of high-paying jobs, not just one-off handouts, for workers in a city where … the unemployment rate as of November was 8.8 per cent, compared to 6.2 per cent across the state.”Download the Article
