AUSTRALIA EXPORTS CLIMATE DISASTER
The main road leading into the Port of Brisbane has, for the third day in a row, been blocked by an activist bringing attention to the vital system change that we need to foster a healthy environment on this planet.
Naomi was locked onto the back of 2 vehicles for a couple of hours to stand in the way of the destruction of this continent. This disruption was taken collectively, on stolen land, with actions happening across so-called Newcastle and Melbourne ports.
In her livestream, Naomi said “I’m doing this because otherwise I’d be completely miserable watching the ecosystems around me be destroyed. Direct action is a method for creating change because it speaks truth to power and demonstrates the urgency of the situation. I really wish for humanity that we can find common goals and a sense of purpose, and more loving ways of existing with the earth.”
An organised resistance movement, made up of everyday people, is what is required to stop Australia’s destruction and protect the natural systems necessary for all life.
Update: 35 hours later (at publication time) and Naomi has still not been released or seen a magistrate and likely won’t until at least 2 days after this protest.
2 supporters of Blockade Australia have were arrested on site at this protest and have been in court and ordered to be held in prison at least until 17 June.
