Canoes vs. Coal Ships

The 350 Pacific Climate Warriors paddled out into the Port of Newcastle, followed by hundreds of Australians and came head to head with gigantic coal ships. It truly was David versus Goliath. Words alone are not enough to describe the courage of the Pacific Warriors as they came face to face with the fossil fuel industry. Watch and share the video of this powerful and inspiring action.

Using hand carved canoes the Warriors, and dozens of Australians in kayaks were able to prevent 10 scheduled ships from passing through the Newcastle coal port. But most importantly, the Warriors stood tall and their message was heard loud and clear: they are not drowning, they are fighting.

As the Warriors continue their journey, help us tell their courageous story — share the Warrior’s story with your friends and ask them to stand with the Warriors.

The Warriors will continue to fight, but they can not do it alone. Thank you for your support.
