NEWCASTLE, Australia -- The Pacific Climate Warriors have been welcomed back to shore after a long day blockading the Newcastle Coal Port.
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 Warriors said, "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."
