Just Transition Tour visits Blockade
A busload of 25 enthusiastic and articulate young people converged on The Blockade on Saturday evening after visiting a series of coal-affected communities throughout The Hunter and Gloucester regions. The stalwart Clift and Duddy families were there to greet them and to explain why this community had no choice but to take direct action. On their way to State and Federal Parliaments, these informed campaigners for green jobs saw for themselves the devastation visited upon communities, water resources and previously prime agricultural land by this polluting industry.
We are grateful for their support and wish them well in raising awareness of how renewable energy solutions can save jobs, enhance the Australian economy and do away with dirty, filthy never-will-be-clean coal. See here for a blog following their visit.
