Breaking news from across the ditch: Greenpeace and Pacific activists have shut down Abbott Point coal export terminal in Queensland in protest over the impacts of climate change on Pacific islands and crazy plans to massively expand the terminal.

It’s all ahead of Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s attendance at the Pacific Islands Forum in Cairns tomorrow. He’ll be talking to leaders of countries already affected by climate change. Rudd has a choice — "stand by our Pacific Island neighbours and stop coal expansion or commit Australia and the Pacific to even greater climate change impacts."

Live updates on Facebook, Twitter and the Greenpeace Australia blog as the action unfolds.
