BREAKING: Another Anti-Coal Protest At Sandgate
It's the third one this week..
Frontline Action on Coal
Another protest has brought coal trains to a halt at Sandgate - the third one this week.
A climate change activist has locked herself to the side of a coal train, stopping trains from entering Newcastle Port.
Police are there ready to remove her.
It's the latest protest in a campaign to stop Australia's export and extraction of coal.
“I have turned to direct action because I’ve tried signing petitions, I’ve tried going to rallies and its not enough. We need transition (to renewables) yesterday, we’re running out of time," Cedar said.
The train line was also blocked by protesters on Monday and Wednesday, resulting in five people being charged.
Police have labeled their actions as "extremely dangerous".
