ANTI- ADANI ac­tivists have ar­rived in Bowen for their week of protests af­ter road- trip­ping from south­ern states.

Mul­lumbimby ac­tivist Mur­ray “Muzz” Dreschler is among the pro­test­ers who trav­elled up in a truck af­ter crowd­fund­ing to pay for fuel.

A crowd- fund­ing page has raised more than $ 900 of their $ 1200 goal, the amount Dreschler said was needed to cover their trip.

“When this is cov­ered the 10 kick- arse ac­tivists won’t be out of pocket to the tune of $ 120 a seat, be­ing grass­roots we are all very poor be­cause we spend most of our money on do­ing di­rect ac­tion,” he wrote on the page.

“This crowd- fun­der will mean they can spend money on court costs, food, etc.” With res­i­dents in Bowen climb­ing trees to take down anti- Adani signs that have sprung up in the last few days, it’s prob­a­bly fair to say the ac­tivists may not be re­ceiv­ing a warm wel­come in town.
