Port of Geelong blockade against seismic testing in the Otways Basin

August 15, 2021

A couple dozen activists from a group called the Otways Climate Emergency Action Network (OCEAN) blockaded the Port of Geelong entrance today in protest against seismic testing/blasting – with the aim of searching for gas deposits – in the Otways Basin. The vessel conducting the seismic testing, Geo Coral, was moored at the port.

Three people locked on to the gate, eventually being cut free by the police and fire brigade.
