The Queensland Premier copped boos and jeers from protesters during a town hall meeting in Cairns overnight.
Annastacia Palaszczuk was questioned about her support for the controversial Adani coal mine at the meeting, prompting opponents to chant “no, no, no”.
It came on the same day the Labor State Government announced it had a plan to fight climate change in Queensland, by cutting carbon emissions.

But the Premier told protesters the new plan to fight climate change would make no difference to Adani’s plan to mine, as they would export Queensland coal to be burnt in India.
“Coal is going to be a part of our energy mix for many years to come,” she told the meeting.
That statement was met with more howls of derision.
