This time CSG protesters are guaranteed to succeed

APPROXIMATELY 50 protestors have already arrived for the day at the Doubtful Creek site of Metgasco's drill rig, with more arriving all the time, anti-CSG protestors have said.

While there was a rumour that the drill rig was set to be moved today, ready for work at another site, Metgasco have denied this and said that there is not, and never were never any plans for the drill rig to be moved today.

One protester is already confirmed to be in place with a lock on device, and calls have gone out on anti-CSG websites and Facebook accounts for more protestors to join in on the efforts at the Doubtful Creek site.

CSG Free Northern Rivers have announced on their Facebook page that Metgasco and police have arrived at the site.
