  1. I will observe the weekends activities with interest, however I would like to bring to your attention, as you drive to Collie,a look to your left and in the distance you will see Worsley refinery with its 3 gas fired and 1 but soon to be 2 coal fired power stations belching fumes into the enviroment. Not to mention the caustic leeching into the soil. Why dont you all camp up there for a night and impact on the big business of the world, not us workers. I have read your handbook and it seems to me that you are advocating criminal activity, how does this translate into a peaceful protest. I’m sure you guys would’nt like it if we were to sit around and work out ways of upsetting your weekend. Keep it peaceful or just stay away from Collie. Some of us have families to care for and jobs to go too. Good luck with your weekend. Rob.

    • Thanks for your comment rob. I too think it will be an interesting weekend.

      It is important to talk about all the coal, indeed fossil fuels in WA, not just Collie. Which perhaps, this website doesn’t do enough of. The gas and coal at Worsely, Kwinana, the gas plants up north and potential coal developments in the Pilbra and Kimberly all deserve the attention of west Wustralians. Who knows maybe next years climate camp will be at one of those locations. I’d encourage yourself and anyone else interested to come to climate camp, especially on Monday when we will e talking about the future of climate campaigning in WA.

      Our intention, wherever we camp and take action, be it in Collie, Perth or Worsley, is to impact on the big business of the world and not workers and communities as much as possible. I’m interested to know why camping at Worsley would impact more on big business and less on workers than camping at Collie?

      For example, in everything we say, we advocate for a just transition for workers and communities, which means pay and conditions maintained at or above current levels, with appropriate training in clean, local industry. We do not however have any sympathy for the rich shareholders and other owners who profit not just from environmental damage, but also from worker exploitation and union busting.

      Im not exactly sure what is going to happen at climate camp. I would however like to point out the differences between criminal and violent behaviour. A good example is the many strikes taken by workers to achieve today’s pay and conditions, most were illegal but peaceful. Some were legal and some were violent, to be sure, but i think the majority fall into the illegal, peaceful category. Which underscores the importance of civil disobedience and direct action to create freedom.

      However, NO violence or criminal behaviour towards any Collie residents, workers or community will come from Climate Campers. Rest assured we do not oppose your rights to jobs, security and family.

      I hope no-one up setts your weekend, in fact I hope it is interesting and eventful, I reckon we all have lots to learn from each other and I look forward to hearing and learning lots from locals and workers. Look forward to meeting you there.

  3. In between your yoga, meditation, tree climbing workshop, bike fixing lessons, band party and quiet time, I would like to know when your going to cook your animal free meals by candle, and dont forget that whatever plant matter your going to wipe your butts on, might actually be a food source for some poor fuzzy creature. Your homes cannot be powered, and you certainly must not have all the conveniences that modern civilisation has now, e.g. tv, phone, flushing loos, etc otherwise, while stating your protests at the powerhouses of western australia and the enviromental impact that they have on our ecosystems, you are in fact biting the very hand that feeds you. Advancement within the human society comes with it’s own negatives and as a global conglomerate, we as the human race, need to accept responsibility and make our own adjustments within our own lives to make amends for the “necessities” we choose to have. The choice of whether to lessen our carbon footprint or not, is up to the individual, not a group of enviroconservists, while meaning to do the right thing, is going to force it down our throats because they think it is the right thing to do.

    Peace.
