Aggressive trucks tear apart climate protester as he wedges himself in two cars in the middle of a busy highway during rush hour, stopping all traffic
Angry truckers tear apart a climate protester who wedges himself between two cars in the middle of a busy highway during rush hour, blocking all traffic.
Blockade Australia protester Naomi Shine blocked two lanes of traffic after she tied herself to two cars on the Brisbane Motorway Port, one kilometer before the Pritchard Road exit on Wednesday.
A live stream of the incident reportedly showed the protest turning violent, as truck drivers abandoned their vehicles and forced some protesters off the road.
Blockade Australian protester Naomi Shine (pictured) blocked two lanes of traffic after chaining herself to two cars on the Brisbane Motorway Port, one kilometer before the Pritchard Road exit on Wednesday.
‘Get the f*** out of the way,’ shouted one.
Miles of traffic jammed as police worked to clear the protesters.
Queensland Police advised motorists to avoid the area.
It marked the third day that the blockade has caused chaos by blocking Australia’s most important coal port and a major motorway as part of coordinated protests across Australia.
One protester, linked to Blockade Australia, was suspended from a railway bridge in Newcastle harbor on Monday, while other coordinated protests were held near the Brisbane coal terminal in the Port of Brisbane and the Port of Melbourne.
Trains carrying coal were prevented from crossing the railway bridge at Newcastle harbor due to the woman’s protest.
Blockade Australia said the protest at Newcastle Port’s Curraghang Island terminal ‘blocked all trains for the world’s most significant economic disruption to the coal industry’.
‘This is an integrated response to global climate destruction in Australia,’ the group said.
