I'm off to the blockade at Bentley tomorrow, a camp of up to 2,000 people, who are fighting to delay drilling for coal seam gas in this beautiful and productive farmland, a few hours south of here. I've written before about attending protests to keep our Northern Rivers free of the destructive and invasive fracking process. http://www.dangersoffracking.com/
Go here if you'd like to read some more about the camp at Bentley. There have been rumours all week that the police will be turning up in force this week to disperse protesters and allow the drilling rig through. This is a peaceful protest, but I don't think the police will hesitate to do whatever they can to clear the roads..........I hope tomorrow's not the day!!
I have no idea what to expect, people I know who have been camping there for weeks say it's inspiring to be in company with so many people who are passionate and committed to stopping the mining.
I'll find out for myself tomorrow !!
