Jan Davis and Wendy White, members of the Hunter Environment Lobby (a member group of Rivers SOS, were part of a protest on Sunday as part of Climate Camp. They joined about 150 other people in blockading the rail line that carries coal into the Bayswater power station, where the NSW Government plans to build another huge coal-fired plant. Both Jan and Wendy were arrested by police.
This issue will not be taken seriously until there are more mass actions, and ordinary everyday people are seen getting arrested for their beliefs.
Both Wendy and I called ourselves ‘Grandparents against Climate Change’, and we were both pleased to take part.
