POLICE STEP UP COAL PORT PATROLS

Anticipating further protest action around Newcastle’s coal port over the weekend – police have begun a high-visibility operation on land and water.

Police vessels, including the ‘Nemesis’ were cruising waterways and patrols around railway infrastructure increased.

The operation comes after protestors halted coal trains four times over the past fortnight.

Police say while they support individuals and groups exercising their right to protest peacefully, they will not tolerate any unlawful behaviour.
