That night we made camp at the Caroona blockade. This is a success story to date and demonstrates the potentials of a community action to stop mining companies in their tracks. The immense community support and endless commitment to the political wheeling and dealing is impressive. The next stage for this battle will be the High Court early 2010. Patricia Duddy said of the unique and rare soil here ‘it’s our black gold and it’s not coal”. She was so intent to make us appreciate the severity the situation, ‘you are seeing our land taken away in trucks’. Ok readers, updates will be forthcoming. A small note though, so far we have shared a new found appreciation for the beautiful and unique landscape, all the things that epitomise Australiana. Including the sweltering heat and the most friendly and kind hospitality of the communities we’re visiting.
