Metgasco suspends operations in Northern Rivers

13 March 2013 – Metgasco has suspended operations in Northern Rivers!

A blockade has been running since Nov 20 with numerous arrests first at Glenugie (8th Jan) and then at Doubtful Creek site. But they did it. The community united and stopped this unwanted threat to envrionment and water.

Ironic to have a Clarence Valley pro-CSG councillor today say how ‘sad’ it was to see a company “hounded and harrassed”. This is the attitude communities have to work against, the corporate seen as a ‘person with feelings.” and the community wanting to have a say portrayed as the bully!
