Just to do a wrap up on the Al Shuwaikh.
After a heatwave, mechanical breakdown and delays in Adelaide, this old icon of the live export trade, sailed into Freo during the early hours of Monday 20th Feb. VALE Spokesperson Dr Sue Foster did offer to examine the ship with ALEC's CEO Simon Westerway who was in WA but ....that offer was rejected.
A flash protest was held on the opposite side of Port at 6pm. Sue was there as a speaker and also answered questions in a Q and A type affair. The irony was that Sue wouldnt have been available to speak at the protest at all if Simon Westerway hadnt pulled the pin on a meeting....yep the second meeting with ALEC that has been cancelled at short notice.
