22 Ozzies arrested trying to de-commission Hazelwood power station this weekend!

“Approximately five hundred people took part in today’s historic action at the Hazelwood coal power station, while 22 people managed to get themselves arrested while attempting to slap a ‘Community Decommission Order’ on Hazelwood.

The feeling throughout the day was fantastic and upbeat, despite a complete over reaction by the Brumby government in its deployment of police force. Over the weekend we had the police helicopter throughout Saturday night and Sunday, mounted police, police in speed boads and jetskis, police on dirt bikes as well as massive numbers of police on foot.

This initially dampened the festive community spirit – but as soon as the first person got across the fence, that all changed.”
