30th An­niver­sary of the Daintree Block­ade

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

The weekend of Novem­ber 30 is the date set for the re­union of the block­aders and oth­ers who were in­volved in the renowned Cape Tribu­la­tion/Bloom­field road protest in 1983/4. Or­gan­is­ers have found when con­tact­ing th­ese ex-block­aders/oth­ers there is still a deep bond be­tween them. Most were in their early 20’s or 30’s at the time. Some still in univer­sity, some set­tling in the Daintree area and some in busi­ness. A very few were un­em­ployed - ex­cept some had left their jobs and homes be­cause this was a very big bat­tle to get into. Any­one who has been part of this part of our re­gions his­tory is in­vited to share their tales on the Desti­na­tion Daintree Face­book page or come along for the celebration at Fern­tree Re­sort at Cape Tribu­la­tion on Nov 30th. https:/ /www.face­book.com/des­ti­na­tiondain­tree
