Important notice about COVID-19 and Camp Binbee
Camp Binbee recognises the ever-changing and unpredictable nature of COVID-19 and the impact that it is having and will have on communities all around the country, and the world.
We take our responsibility to the wider public seriously, and what this means for the safety and wellbeing of all people.
As a result, to limit the chance of COVID-19 spreading, we have decided to listen to the advice of health experts and ask that nobody visits Camp Binbee for the time being.
We are currently sourcing further information in relation to COVID-19 and formulating the best course of action for the near future.
This being said, Frontline Action on Coal would like to note that the frontline movement is ongoing – there are endless ways that direct action and other forms of action against Adani can still take place (you don’t need to be at Camp Binbee)!
Watch this space, sign up for updates, and see what types of actions you can take part in that doesn’t involve being at Camp Binbee.
In the coming week, we will have online upskilling opportunities for people to engage with, as we know many of you are self-isolating and distancing yourselves from the public but still want to make a difference and learn!
We still have a big job to do, and we need you to be ready to come to Camp Binbee when the time is right.
