CSG protesters overwhelmed by support

Protesters at the Fullerton Cove coal seam gas blockade say they have been overwhelmed by the support from surrounding businesses.

Items which have been delivered day and night include bread, milk, fruit, firewood and bottled water.

‘‘We’ve also had people just dropping in with soups and freshly baked cakes,’’ Fullerton Cove resident Sue Walker said.

‘‘We’ve had older and younger people over the past four days. It’s not a few people who are concerned about this project.’’

Fullerton Cove CSG protest enters fourth day

The coal seam gas protest at Fullerton Cove has entered its fourth day.

Police ordered protesters to vacate the site by 6pm last night, however, they have not returned since issuing five protesters with infringement notices yesterday afternoon.

Fullerton Cove residents Lisa McDonald and Julie Wood remained chained to a tractor that is blocking the entrance to the Fullerton Cove property.

Dart Energy, which has state and federal government approval to drill four pilot wells on the site, said its contractors were being unfairly punished by the blockade.
