Alliance to protest at Jondaryan

THE Lock the Gate Alliance will host a major action at Jondaryan aimed at exposing the scandal that is the town's coal dump and the stage-three application for the Acland coal mine.

Activists including shock jock Alan Jones will march from Jondaryan to the railway dump for the Acland open cut coal mine on Monday, February 20 starting at 11.30am.

They will push wheelbarrow loads of fruit and vegetables, while others will ride horses and dress in koala or kangaroo costumes.

Buses will transport participants from Brisbane.
