Mass arrests disrupt coal supply at Bayswater, Keneally given ultimatum on coal

130 people pushed over a fence and entered onto land adjacent to the Bayswater coal-fired power station on Sunday 5th December. 12 people attached themselves with a device to the train tracks and approximately 60 of the 130 remained in the vicinity of the tracks. The remaining protestors tried negotiating with Police and stating that they were willing to voluntarily remove themselves from the train tracks on the condition that The NSW Premier Kristina Keneally withdraw the 'Bayswater B' proposal, commit to no new coal in NSW and begin a transition to renewable energy immediately.
