Hundreds of people have held the Newcastle coal port since 9am this morning. Only four of the twelve ships, including two coal ships, scheduled to pass through the port have broken the blockade lead by a group of Pacific Climate Warriors representing 12 Pacific Island nations. 
“The coal which leaves this port has a direct impact on our culture and our islands. It is clear to us that this is the kind of action which we must take in order to survive. Climate change is an issue which affects everyone and coal companies may expect further actions like this in future.” 
The blockade continues despite several encounters with police vessels which have resulted in boats capsizing.
