‘Prosecute Adani’

This was a song sung outside Qld Parliament on Weds 5th Sept to demand that Adani got prosecuted for the coal dust and sludge spill at their coal port. And it came about!  They will be prosecuted  nothing like a good song to hurry things along  

Written by Dermot Dorgan with Peter McCallum from Mackay Consevation Group. The tune is Alleluhia by Leonard Cohen and a great set of words.

PROSECUTION

We’ve listened to the evidence

Presented here for this offence,

It’s clear for guilt there is no diminution.

We all agree that for this deed,

Adani’s guilt is clear indeed

And now you should proceed to Prosecution.

Prosecution
Prosecution
Prosecution
Pro-se-cu-u-tion.

Last year when cyclone Debbie came

With mighty winds and flooding rain,

Adani’s people lied about pollution.

They said, “ It won’t be really gross

“One hundred milligrams at most”.

Their lies aimed at evading Prosecution.

Prosecution …

We’ve heard about the bad report
Adani tried to hide in court
They broke the rules and thereby caused pollution
The number it was 8-0-6
At Abbot Point … we saw the pics
And now the time has come for Prosecution

Prosecution ….

Well the case is strong and you have the proof,
The coal dust count went through the roof,
Coal flowed out to the Reef with no dilution.
Adani said it wasn’t fair
To send a fine, no you wouldn’t dare –
Take them to court and launch a Prosecution

Prosecution….

Now the case is won, it’s very clear

The penalty must be severe,

For crimes like this there is no absolution.

The public rightly must insist

No simple slap upon the wrist

Will do as a result of prosecution.

Prosecution….
