In November, two Illawarra grandfathers embark on an epic journey, sailing and paddling a kayak between two of Australia’s key coal ports, Port Kembla and Newcastle, en route to The People’s Blockade of the World’s Largest Coal Port. Read more here:

On Sunday, November 12, they will arrive at an iconic location in Sydney Harbour and we will be there to greet them with banners and flags and lots of colour and vibrancy to create a great event for media and social media and help to publicise the Blockade.

Afterwards we will have a picnic in the park - bring your own and join us! It will be a great opportunity for Sydney-siders going to the Blockade to meet and share experiences and plans and to ask questions.
