Environmental activists target Lend Lease meeting over reef

ANOTHER major corporate meeting has become the prime target of environmental activists, as they fight companies associated with the coal mining industry in Central Queensland.

The Australian Marine Conservation Society delivered a letter with more than 18,000 signatures asking Lend Lease not to pursue a stake in the expansion of the Abbot Point coal terminal, which sits on the coastline of the Great Barrier Reef.

The growth of Abbot Point is being driven by a surge in burgeoning mining investment in the Galilee Basin west of Rockhampton.

Earlier this week, activists infiltrated the annual general meeting of freight giant Aurizon in response to its interest in helping build a rail line that would link these Galilee mines to the Abbot Point port.
