Naomi has been granted magistrate’s bail after blocking the road into the Port of Brisbane on Wednesday.
She is in good spirits and being cradled in community after the Police tried to forcibly remove her arm from the lock-on device causing a severe tear in her finger. She stayed locked-on while they cut her out for two more hours blocking work across the port. She received finger surgery in custody and is expecting a full recovery.
“The violence that this state enacts on the climate itself will have dire consequences for all life on earth, it is because of the states threat of violence against ecosystems that we continue to take action to protect life.”
Activists who disrupt destructive projects have experienced police and human violence since the earliest days of nonviolent intervention.
Meaningful resistance is, by its nature, uncomfortable. It is also the purpose of resistance because change only comes through discomfort.
How we move through discomfort and care for each other is how we show what a different world could look like. To reconnect with each other and continue to take action is what’s needed if we are going to dismantle this system and build a world of care.
Addressing violence against each other and against our biosphere is the challenge we must all face, together.
