Protesters scramble to block CSG tests

ANTI-CSG protesters are rallying today in Casino against seismic testing being conducted by Metgasco.

More than 50 protesters gathered this morning in a paddock near the Casino Primex site as Metgasco begun seismic testing near the neighbouring Sewage Treatment Works on Spring Grove Rd.

Metgasco has planned three consecutive days of seismic testing in the area.

Protest organisers put out a call for support on the internet last night though added that many "had to get back to work".

The protesters plan to follow Metgasco workers as they make their way from the current site to Casino Airport, where the final tests are expected to be held on either Saturday or Sunday.
