And in Australia, Climate Activists Shut Down Coal Conveyor
Two climate change activists chained themselves to a conveyor belt carrying coal to one of Australia’s largest power stations on Saturday, temporarily shutting the belt down, supporters said. The Camp for Climate Action protesters chained themselves by their necks, stopping movement of coal for more than two hours, group spokeswoman Ellen Roberts said. They were cut free by police and arrested, and the belt restarted. A spokesman for London-listed mining company Xstrata, which supplies coal to the power station, confirmed that the conveyor was halted. Macquarie Generation and police at the scene could not be immediately contacted for comment.
