From the Northern Star, June 16 2012
Up to 20 communities have now signed up to a pledge to protect the region from the industry’s “radical plan to turn the Northern Rivers into gas fields”.
The declarations are powerful statements which send a clear political message, says Southern Cross University law and justice lecturer Aidan Ricketts.
He said the declarations counter the legal power of coal seam gas companies to force entry to land and make it clear to politicians the political cost of allowing access is unacceptably high.
“The Coal Seam Gas Free Community strategy is a powerful new political strategy aimed at defending communities through the use of a solidarity based approach,” Mr Ricketts said.
