Banner Drop Against Coal Seam Gas in Australia

21 Oct

Cross Posted from Brisbane Times

Protesters opposing coal seam gas production in Queensland have taken to Brisbane’s Kangaroo Point cliffs have their message heard – and seen. As part of the protest involving the Lock the Gate Alliance and environmental groups, seven giant banners with anti-CSG messages were attached to the cliff face. Lock the Gate spokesman Innes Larkin said the banners were a demonstration of the depth of community opposition to CSG mining in southeast Queensland.

‘‘If the government and miners think rural communities will just take this lying down, they’re wrong,’’ Mr Larkin said. Advertisement ‘‘People in the bush are angry and they are prepared to make a stand to protect where they live, their soil and their water.’’ Lock the Gate have been running a week of protests across the state, which began with a march and concert at Murwillumbah in northern NSW last Sunday.
