The Adani Files - a short history of corruption, destruction and criminal activity

Dangerous. Corrupt. Criminal.

Sound like the kind of company you'd want in charge of one of the most destructive projects in Australian history?

Today GetUp is releasing an explosive new report — The Adani Files — that exposes Adani's sordid history of corruption, destruction and criminal activity.
