Australia: QL: Cairns: angry fishermen

I read in the newspaper that the fishermen of Queensland are absolutely unhappy: new regulations are introduced to reduce the amount of fishing. As a consequence, they threaten to put a bomb on the Esplanade in Cairns (very touristic area) and to close Cairns off on THursday by blocking the harbour and the farmers would support them and block the highways with their trucks.
My plane leaves Thursday evening to Micronesia, so it i sprobably safer to be back in Cairns on Wednesday evening.
