Climate warning

More than 100 arrested at world's largest coal port.

A 97-year-old man was among the 109 people arrested as climate protesters refused to leave after a 30-hour blockade of one of the world’s largest coal ports in Australia.
“I am doing this for my grandchildren and future generations,” Alan Stuart, 97, said in a statement before his arrest.
Over 3,000 protesters assembled at the Port of Newcastle on Sunday to demonstrate against the government’s alleged inaction on climate change ahead of the COP28 summit.

        This is wrong on all angles.. He even said he is doing it for his great grandchildren and was still arrested.. Those who did that should be brought to book

          It's concerning to hear that over 100 people were arrested at the world's largest coal port. This highlights the ongoing struggle between those who prioritize economic growth and those who advocate for environmental protection. It's important for society to find a balance that promotes sustainable energy solutions while also addressing the concerns of industries and workers affected by the transition away from coal.

              Making an arrest can't keep them down, they just need to be heard.

                This event is part of a broader global movement calling for stronger climate policies and a shift towards renewable energy.

                            It's wrong to harass and/or arrest people and they are only trying to send a message that should be listened to.

                              @rosebellendiritu those calling the shots feel threatened by those who voice out their opinion.

                                @rosebellendiritu Absolutely, peaceful expression of concerns should be respected, and harassment or arrests can hinder the open dialogue necessary for addressing important issues

                                  @jane_wangui It's essential for governments to create a space where citizens can voice their opinions without fear, enabling a more democratic and participatory approach to addressing societal concerns.

                                    Why would the government arrest it's citizens when its clearly evident they are conveying a message for a sustainable future.

                                      @rashid_kamau It's crucial for governments to engage in constructive dialogue with citizens advocating for environmental causes rather than resorting to arrests, fostering a more inclusive approach to address shared concerns.

                                        The arrest of over 100 climate protesters, including a 97-year-old man, at the world's largest coal port in Australia underscores the growing urgency and diversity of voices calling for action against climate change. The 30-hour blockade by more than 3,000 protesters at the Port of Newcastle reflects a collective frustration with the government's perceived inaction on climate issues.

                                          @rukia_ahmed_abdi Addressing these concerns through dialogue and collaboration would be more constructive than resorting to arrests.
