Anti Adani coal project protestors lock themselves to heavy machinery

Protesters strap selves to Adani machines, AAP http://www.theage.com.au/business/mining-and-resources/protesters-strap-selves-to-adani-machines-20171024-p4ywmv.html   Anti-coal activists have locked themselves to heavy machinery to protest Adani’s mega mine in central Queensland.  Three members of the Frontline Action on Coal group have used a sleeping dragon technique – which involves wrapping their arms around equipment then locking their hands inside metal pipes so they can’t be removed by outsiders – to attach themselves to a grader, excavator and front-end loader near one of the workers’ camps at Belyando.

Protesters have vowed to “do whatever it takes to peacefully stop” the $21.7 billion coal mine and rail project.
