Stuff reported that Coal Action Network Aotearoa, Environmental Justice Otepoti and Extinction Rebellion Otepoti/Otautahi/Waihopai, locked themselves to the railway tracks outside the Dunedin Railway Station about 7.30 AM on Saturday, in an attempt to stop the daily coal train running from Bathurst Resources’ Takitimu mine in Southland to Fonterra’s Clandeboye milk factory in Temuka. About 20 people were on the track, including eight who were locked to it.

The group had three demands: that the Bathurst mines stop expanding, for Fonterra to quit coal, and for the Government to “stop coal in its tracks”.
