Abseiling activists hang off bridge

Clancey and Tim have been arrested this evening after two hours suspended from Kooragang Bridge over the Hunter River, blocking trains entering the world’s biggest coal port. This is the fifth consecutive day that Blockade Australia has caused consistent and targeted disruption of the Newcastle Coal Port on Awabakal and Worimi Country.

“At this point in time, any type of protest that is merely focused on dissent is a death sentence. We need to be materially disruptive, as vested interest doesn’t shift just because you ask it to”


The structures and institutions of Australia are designed to facilitate extraction and economic growth at the expense of this planet. There are no mechanisms for meaningful change within the existing system. We are facing societal and ecosystem collapse. Our only option is to stand in the way.

“Non-violent resistance is now a moral necessity”
