Pledging to protect country

Today we stood with more than 120 people from across the country, and all up and down the reef coast of Queensland, pledging to do what it takes to stand in the way of the expansion of the coal industry in the Galilee basin, and the proposed expansion of Abbott Point coal terminal.

After sharing workshops and experience on Birri land for several days we headed to the port for a peaceful action. Led by a delegation of traditional owners, we were welcomed onto Juru country and gave our pledges to defend country to Aunty Carol Prior. The delegation breached port private roads, and attempted to deliver the pledges to the facility but were turned back.

We stood with them today, and you can too. Check out our photos and sign the pledge: www.reefdefenders.net
