Protesters blockade Whitehaven mine

PROTESTERS have launched a blockade at Whitehaven’s controversial Maules Creek coal mine project to stop construction at the site. Leard Forest Alliance spokeswoman Georgina Woods said police had established a roadblock nearby and were preventing access to the Maules Creek mine site, where protesters have attached themselves to equipment. Ms Woods said Gomeroi elder Uncle Dick Talbot has tried to attend the scene but was been denied access while protesters have vowed to remain in place.
