PHOTOS: Protest urges Vic government to quit brown coal exports

About 100 people attended a midday protest on June 28 to oppose the export of coal from Victoria. The protest was organised by Quit Coal. Speakers denounced the horrendous damage Victoria's brown coal exports will do to the local environment and the global climate.

After the rally, a section of the crowd marched to the offices of Exergen — the company that plans to export coal from Victoria. The activists occupied the CEO's office to protest the company's refusal to meet with local residents.

Cool, great news. As an investor in companies involved in brown coal development I applaud the effort your team is making to bring this opportunity to a wider audience. Your efforts will only make me richer. Many thanks
