Iconic Australian supports Leard Blockade

Michael Caton visited Camp Wando and the Boggabri open cut coal mine yesterday. His visit comes as part of a tour of coal and CGS affected communities in North West NSW. Mr. Caton came to show his support for Cliff Wallace and the campaign to save the Leard Forest.

Mr. Caton comes from an area wrecked by the mining industry so has witnessed first hand the devastation caused by mining companies. He commended the efforts of Cliff and Frontline Action on Coal “Cliff is a beacon of light to everyone fighting for justice. His determination and stubbornness is inspiration.”

Leard Forest Alliance spokesperson, Elise Chatterton, said “We are thrilled to receive encouragement from yet another high profile Australian. He joins the many thousands of diverse individuals who have come to be a part of this historic campaign.”

After attending a film screening in Narrabri on Friday night, Mr. Caton’s next stop will be the CSG threatened community of Dubbo.
