Stop costly steel imports - CQ Today

In November 1938, wharfies at Port Kembla bravely refused to load the ship *Dalfram* with pig iron destined for Japan in protest about the invasion of Manchuria. The pig iron had come from the Port Kembla steelworks, near Wollongong, which is an indelible part of Australian history.

It should also be part of our future although that is at risk. The coal mine that supplies the Port Kembla steelworks has not been able to get approval to extend and is now slated to close in 2028. The owner of the steelworks, Bluescope, says that it would cost up to $100 million to import coal from elsewhere threatening its long term viability.
