TWO protesters have blocked Aurizon train access to Adani’s Abbot Point coal terminal by chaining themselves to a drum of concrete on the rain line.

Activist group Front Line Action on Coal reported this morning the protesters locked had their arms inside a steel barrel filled with concrete on the train tracks to prevent train access.

The action started about 7.15am today.

A spokesman for Front Line Action on Coal told Townsville Bulletin it was taking the action because the Queensland Labor government was considering rail operator Aurizon’s bid for a Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility loan.

The activist group said a loan would open the floodgates for new coalmines in the Galilee Basin.

Lilli Barto, a physics student, was this morning locked onto the concrete barrel.

“State Labor said during the election campaign that they would veto ‘any NAIF loan’ that would enable Adani’s dirty coal project,” she said.

“Funding Aurizon would be a backdoor route to allow Adani to build the biggest coal mine in the southern hemisphere.”

Natan Shlomo, a youth worker, is also attached to the barrel on the railway.

“Coal is fuelling catastrophic climate change. We stand against the damage this would cause in the Galilee basin,” he said.

“If Labor continue to turn a blind eye to the devastating cost of coal mining – they are complicit.”

The blockade is the most recent in a number of actions in North Queensland.

On January 3 anti-Adani protesters reportedly boarded the wrong train while protesting the Carmichael coal mine.

The protesters, Anna Hush and Gareth Davies, were arrested about 10am after climbing on to the train at dawn yesterday and remaining for three hours with a “Stop Adani” sign over one of the wagons.

Whitsunday councillor Mike Brunker yesterday warned Adani activists it was only a matter of time before contractors and locals confront protesters in Bowen.

“It’s quite possible that a few of them (protesters) are going to get a clipping,” he said. “If you’ve got ­people from all over Australia working (in Bowen) then I seriously think someone may get a clipping.”

Anti-Adani protesters in November last year warned they would not stop protesting actions until the Adani mine was stopped.

The Stop Adani movement has listed several concerns about Adani’s operations in Australia, including air pollution and climate change.

What is Adani

Adani’s businesses include coal trading, coal mining, oil and gas exploration, ports, multi-modal logistics, power generation and transmission, as well as gas distribution.

It acquired the Abbot Point Coal Terminal in 2011 and purchased of Abbot Point BulkCoal Operating business in 2016.

Adani is behind the Carmichael coal mine project which includes an open-cut and underground coal mine with a yield of 60 million tonnes per annum and a 189km railway line.

  1. To the heads of the World Bank thank you for your solidarity. The World Bank will stop financing oil and gas exploration and extraction from 2019, it announced Tuesday at a climate summit seeking to boost the global economy’s shift to cleaner energy. International cooperation in the field of nature protection in solving the global problem of peace. Protest stop mining oil, gas, coal and so on. Worldwide, the amount of water is rapidly decreasing. In it’s mostly the fault of humanity. And quite a bit of time it remains, when the water will be a terrible deficit. Today, in all countries of the world officials, deputies, senators and celebrities of all stripes are sending all the forces and means to manipulate and destroy the consciousness of the masses: Thus turned and turn all the ordinary people of the world into obedient zombies and a monster for destructive mudflows.

Increase in dangerous weather events due to the devastating effects of human activity. Desertification of the globe arе huge pits, quarries and underground cavities around the world because of the extraction of salt, coal, ore, oil, gas, Nickel, copper, uranium, gold, diamond, soil, gravel, sand, stone and so on From-for production all this disappear ponds, streams, rivers, lakes, forests and sea. In Africa, Asia and other countries of the world a huge amount of water almost disappeared from the face of the earth and turned into a desert.

All of the causes of environmental catastrophe happens all over the world from mining oil, coal, gas, iron ore, salt, diamonds, gold, sand, soil and so on. Environmental pollution around the world poses a serious threat to all worldwide. Live Earth be in great danger. There are many things that negatively affect the Earth: mining coal, oil, gas and so on, emissions from factories and exhaust gases, deforestation, poisoning of air and water pollution, depletion of the ozone layer and catastrophically global changes of climate all over the world. Environmental pollution is one of the most acute problems of the world. monstrous the behavior of humanity is a catastrophe in the world. The tragic events around the world Save Nature Planet, please save Earth. Earthquakes, causes extraction of oil, gas, coal, iron ore, salt and so on.

In the world of all diseases and cancer in particular related to from oil, gas, coal, landfill, sewage network and the whole industrialization and urbanization: It carries all the poisoning and destruction of the habitat of all living things in the world. Many countries in the world for the first time in many years, was severely damaged by hurricanes. Environmental disaster from urbanization and industrialization: global climate change around the world increases the risk of environmental disasters.

People from international environmental organizations gathered for a rally in protest against mining coal, ore, oil, gas, soil, gravel, sand, stone, salt and so on. It is not too late for all of us and for all the world to recover to stop production of soil, gravel, sand, stone, salt, coal. ore, oil, gas and more. Mining salt, coal, oil and gas brings us poverty, disease and death.

Chemical hazardous substances deadly to all living things in the world. World production of oil, gas, coal, salt and so on are dangerous for the environment. There are serious problems of environmental pollution in all countries of the world, this occurs when cities, factories, transportation, sanitation, landfill and so on, pollute the air, water and land. Harmful substances are mixed, and the mixture is distributed worldwide in the wind and fall back to earth. Coal, oil and gas brings us poverty, disease and death. Global industrialization and urbanization has led to global climate change for the worst in the world. To recover and permanently terminate mining of soil, gravel, sand, stone, salt, coal. ore, oil, gas and more. So we can prevent global environmental catastrophe. Between us and other animals plants, there is no difference – we are all children of the Earth and we are all one family. We all the world should live according to the laws of mother Nature and save mother Earth from ecological disaster.
