Greenpeace activists have shut down coal loading at Hay Point Coal Terminal in Mackay, Queensland – one of the largest coal export terminals in the world. The 10 activists have scaled a 50-metre high coal loader and locked onto the structure to stop its operation.

Today’s action follows yesterday’s occupation of Abbot Point coal terminal to the north of Mackay. Watch our blog or Twitter for updates as they happen.
