YOU CAN’T DEMAND ANYTHING FROM THE SYSTEM.
This morning, Niamh (20) abseiled off the Footscray Rd Bridge, blocking six lanes of traffic and access to the Port of Melbourne, the biggest container port on the continent.
Niamh said: “Blockade Australia has no demands because you cannot demand anything from a system that is designed to extract and exploit. The system that will always put profit above acting on the climate crisis. This system is the problem and the only way to create change is to stop it.”
For the third consecutive day, activists have mobilised to blockade major ports across the continent. Ports are a critical part of the infrastructure of the Australian export economy. This is an organised response to Australia’s role in causing the climate and ecological crisis.
