ActUp Newcastle
Frontline Action on Coal (FLAC) in collaboration with Newcastle Climate Justice Uprising is launching it’s #EndCoal campaign this September.

Newcastle Police have arrested multiple innocent bystanders for filming a peaceful protest this morning. Sarah Barron ascended a tripod this morning which blocked coal trains from entering the world's biggest coal port.

While filming from a safe distance, two people have been arrested by Newcastle police for 'aiding and abetting'. They have been taken into police custody and we will let you know as soon as possible, the outcome of this arrest. More than a dozen police officers are at the scene.

Sarah Barron blocked all coal trains heading across Sandgate bridge for over three hours this morning. She is concerned, as many of us are, about their bleak future if the coal industry maintains its grasp on our politicians.
