Protestors in front of the gates of US Marine Corps Camp Schwab try to block trucks carrying construction vehicles onto the base. The new construction will double the size of the current base, creating a massive site that will include two airstrips. Plans have been laid to reclaim land from the surrounding sea to achieve this but phe protestors claim this will permanently damage coral reefs and the feeding grounds of the endangered dugong. Preparations for the work has already started but demonstrators are hopeful construction can still be stopped.
