Brisbane Powerhouse: Powered by Dirty Coal

Despite massive community opposition, BMD - a major partner of our beloved Brisbane Powerhouse - has just become Adani's biggest contractor, building the critical railway, opening up the entire Galilee Basin to massive new thermal coal mines.

The Powerhouse is owned by Brisbane City Council - which means it's owned by the people of Brisbane. BMD and the Power family are deeply entrenched in the Powerhouse - a picture tells a thousand words (see below).

Seem formidable? It's not. What is more important to the Powerhouse and Brisbane City Council than its sponsors? YOU! Visitors of the Powerhouse are its heartbeat, and they know this.

Ask they find another sponsor, one more aligned with the community value of a safe climate for Powerhouse visitors, Brisbane residents and all Australians. Feel free to suggest better alternatives, or even offer sponsorship yourself. 

Write to the Powerhouse CEO Fiona Maxwell, Board Member Hayley Johnson (and daughter of BMD’s owners) and Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner, demanding they step up and keep dirty coal out of our treasured Brisbane Powerhouse.
