CSG opponents set up new camp at Glenugie

ANTI-CSG activists say they will continue to maintain a presence in Glenugie and have announced a new campsite on private property about 800m from the Metgasco site.

Following Monday's arrests, co-founder of the Glenugie Action Group Melissa Green sent an open invitation on Facebook to anyone wishing to take part.

"Please come on down and join us in our struggle," Ms Green posted on Wednesday.

"They may have broken the blockade, but they have not broken our spirit."

Neighbour George Oxenbridge said the past few weeks had been a rollercoaster.

He said about 20 protesters were on site yesterday, but morale had been low following Monday's arrests.

"Emotionally it's taken such a toll on the community. I can't believe how people have been so generous in giving their time and support," he said.
