Hundreds of refugee rights activists stared down police intimidation to protest the continued detention of refugees at the Kangaroo Point detention centre, reports Alex Bainbridge.

I was one of the hundreds of people who took part in the action by Extinction Rebellion calling for genuine climate action. Approximately 50 of us were arrested.

Extinction Rebellion activist and Socialist Alliance member Petrina Harley spoke to Green Left Weekly about the media beat-up of their action at the WA Parliament.

 

A climate activist has locked on to machinery at Adani’s Carmichael coal mine site in Central Queensland a day after Queensland Premier Anastasia Palaszczuk announced penalties for climate protestors participating in civil disobedience.

Early on September 29 peace activists blockaded the Raytheon facility in Alice Springs. Four activists locked onto the gates of the facility preventing employees from entering.

This action is one in a series of protests against the military-industrial complex that supplies the joint US-Australian military base at Pine Gap.
