'Bat Attack' at Maules Creek

FRONT Line Action on Coal is organising a six-day gathering at the Maules Creek coal mine site in New South Wales Gunnedah that is aiming to build a "creative resistance to defend habitat, climate and communities from coal expansion".

Called the “Bat Attack”, the event will include music, skillshares, workshops, arts, and action, Front Line said.

“The Bat Attack will be in Maules Creek NSW on Gomeroi Country, home to Australia’s first ever blockade camp on coal the #LeardBlockade against Whitehaven Coal,” it said.

“Front Line has been defending the Leard State Forest from open cut coal for over two years.”

The Maules Creek coal project is officially three months ahead of schedule as the first coal-loaded train departed from the site to Newcastle port in December.

The milestone followed recent pre-commissioning tests of the new rail spur with four activists arrested for interfering with this activity in December.
