Anniversary of Metgasco exile to be celebrated at Bentley

BENTLEY farmers and anti-CSG protest movement will celebrate the one year anniversary of the Bentley blockade's successful conclusion tomorrow. 

Tomorrow it will be one year since Metgasco's licence was suspended by the NSW Government following the protest.

CSG Free Northern Rivers organiser Elly Bird said the event would formally thank Bentley farmer John Scarabelotti, who had invited the Bentley protest camp to be setup on his land.

"It was a significant thing he did for the community in letting us use his property," Ms Bird said.

"It meant the community could have a place to be, and talk about the issue and educate people why we were out there in the first place."

Ms Bird added that the Bentley locals remained "absolutely firm" in their commitment to keep the gas industry of their land.

The event will kick off at the Bentley Rd land at 11am tomorrow.
