People’s occupation of the world’s biggest coal port

Newcastle Harbour 3 hours north of Sydney has the dubious honour of being the world’s biggest coal port.  It’s where Australia exports climate change to the rest of the world.

The people’s occupation of the harbour is an annual event where people build dodgy rafts and other ‘sea worthy’ vessels and occupy the harbour for the day, stopping any coal ships from getting through.  Activism that involves swimming, lying on the beach and capsising hopeless raft building efforts..

Good times had by all!
