Okay, Day 9 and it’s been a wild evening!

2pm: After Luke’s morning action, Heike jumps on a coal train halting trains in and out of the Newcastle Coal Port.

11pm: Skye climbs into a tree-sit tied to the rail, blocking traffic for a solid 5 hours. She is kept company on her livestream by a few passionate supporters from around the world over night.

4.30am: Nate steps in at dawn for the next 3 hours, hanging from a bipod over 2-mile creek bridge leading into the world’s largest coal port.

#BlockadeAustralia is a growing network that knows direct action is effective when it’s targeted and sustained as it challenges power where it operates on the ground.
