Protest against the expansion of the Olympic Dam Mine (Roxby Downs, Australia)

Activists have made camp to protest in front of the Olympic Dam Mine near Roxby Downs, 560 kilometres north-west of Adelaide. A Gate was broken, and there have been a few arrests at the otherwise peaceful demonstration site. Police says roadblocks around the area will remain in place for a week. If you want further information on the problem, the awareness homepage from 2011, Roxstop-action.org is a good place to start. You'll find a film called "Wake UP" by David Bradbury, plus further information on the planned expansion of the Olympic Dam Mine.
