In Stories: Celebrating Chaelundi's 30th Anniversary *Online*

*We have to cap capacity at 100. If you miss out we will be uploading the whole event to NEFA's YouTube to receive sign up to our mail list*


NEFA twice blockaded Chaelundi, with our biggest blockade starting in April 1991, with the police taking 10 days from 23 July to breakthrough, in the process arresting 230 people.

The combination of creative blockade tactics, the best kind of feralty and critical legal actions were finally successful in stopping the Government in its tracks. 

The fact that these 7000ha are now protected in the Guy Fawkes River National Park is testimony to the 230 people arrested and the countless others who participated and supported the campaign.

Join us for an afternoon of reminiscing and storytelling online to hear the stories from one of NSW's most successful blockades and legal actions.

    I was there
    Climbed down one of the pipes at the entrance

    I spoke to the loggers
    I said we don’t want you to out bread and butter on the table for your children
    We just don’t want U coming into the old growth

    You and me us need to walk arm and arm down to the Australian gov

    Why have they not created a sustainable plantation

    He said you make so much sense

    Where did U come from

    I’m independent
    But U must understand the greens

    They are about sustainability

    We all have house made of timber

    But we need a sustainable system
    He got it we stood together

    I got a ride to the blockade in a bus filled with formidable ittle old ladies from the National Parks Assocation. The NPA women meeting the NEFA ferals was a fabulous coalescence of very dfferent universes, and the police and worker respect for the campaign went up a notch when these women arrived – and wouldn’t stop harangung them!
