Protesters create mock Great Barrier Reef at coal conference

PROTESTERS will create a mock Great Barrier Reef outside the Galilee Basin Coal Conference in Brisbane this morning, which is set to showcase plans for at least nine new coal mines in Central Queensland.

A Greenpeace Queensland spokeswoman says if opened up for mining, the Galilee Basin will produce more climate pollution than most nations in the world.

The protesters will become colourful fish, coral, tourists, fishermen, whales and turtles, forcing coal company executives  to make their way through the coral-reef obstacle course to get into the venue.
