Police intercept anti uranium protestors arriving near Roxby Downs, South Australia

Police brace for five-day Olympic Dam protest BY: MARK SCHLIEBS The Australian July 14, 2012 “……Protest organiser Nectaria Calan said yesterday that, by 4.30pm local time, 200 activists had gathered at a makeshift campground about 2km from the gates to the mine, with several more busloads making their way to the site.

Police were stopping vehicles at roadblocks around the mine and escorting them to the camp. “They’re bringing people around to here with a police escort,” Ms Calan said. “People are starting to feel a little bit unsafe and it’s a fairly hostile step by the police.”

She said protesters would march to the gates this morning, but what they would do after that was still to be decided.
