Hundreds of surfers, beachgoers, conservationists and environmental activists staged their second peaceful protest against Norwegian oil company Equinor's plans to commence exploratory drilling the Great Australian Bight.
On Saturday, Treading Lightly in the MUD (Milton Ulladulla District) called on the public to unite with their hands across the sand, symbolising their defence of the coastline.
Local environment educator and founder of Treading Lightly in the MUD, Budawang elder Noel Butler, sustainability advocate and former reality TV star Wombat, Shoalhaven mayor Amanda Findley as well as passionate local activists Marianne Cool, Nick Evans and Jade Mudge spoke of the potential damage an oil spill would have on the Shoalhaven community, and where constituents can direct their passionate fight to save the Bight.
Wombat, who has been involved the Sea Shepherd campaigns, said people should continue to pressure private oil companies like Equinor.
"It's about telling those oil companies no, the people power," she said to the crowd assembled on the sand in front of Mollymook Surf Life Saving Club.
"If we stop the companies then we can tell the government it's not happening."
Cr Findley said all involved were part of a political action. She called on the crowd to apply pressure to all forms of government, including 'denialsaurs' through letters outlining their stance on offshore drilling.
"We are in the worst situation this planet has ever seen when it comes to extinction," she said.
"Express the sentiment that you say no to this. You do have the power, use it, harness it and tell you friends."
Ulladulla High School student and co-organiser Jade Mudge praised the support of the crowd, particularly the younger brigade.
"It's awesome to see a big majority are kids," she said.
Ms Mudge along with fellow students Takesa Frank and Lachlan Congram recently addressed Shoalhaven City Councillors. She believed local government was beginning to listen the next generation's voice.
"They are listening to us. "I think we've taken the first step for this big change."
