New South Wales

From 12 to 16 September, join us as we Act Up to End Coal in Newcastle with a fun, non-violent direct action campaign against the world’s largest coal port.

On 12 and 13 September Frontline Action on Coal will host training sessions on all aspects of a non-violent campaign, as we converge on Newcastle. Bring your skills, your ideas, your mates and your passion to take our planet back!

On 14 and 15 September we will launch a series of actions to starve the Newcastle port of coal.

On 16 September we celebrate, debrief and begin to plan for the next phase.

We need to end coal yesterday.

We need to end fossil fuels forever.

Australia is lagging behind the rest of the world, fundamentally failing to take the steps necessary to avoid catastrophic climate change and its associated ecocide. We need to train ourselves and build our strength to a point where we as concerned global citizens can shut down environmental vandals and save our planet, regardless of the wishes of corrupt politicians.

Adani and its Carmichael Coal mine, the focus of the climate campaign for the past year along the east coast, has again gone quiet. Whilst we remain vigilant against this threat — #BlockadeAdani is staying put! — we are also ready to move on the next major strategic target.

Newcastle is the world’s largest coal port, it is located comparatively close to major population centres and it is a city that itself has a strong grassroots campaign against coal and fossil fuels. Newcastle is the place for this continent’s climate fight. Come and be the change we all want to see!
