Watch dogs lock-on despite CSG anti-protest laws
YOU may now get a 7-year prison sentence for obstructing a CSG site under the Baird government's new anti-protest bill, but what about your dog?
One Lismore mutt, Moby, made a mockery of the anti-protest laws which passed NSW parliament last week, by standing on a farmer's truck tray outside the gates of mining giant Santos' CSG facility.
He had a sign hanging from his collar that read #lockonwithme.
- Family plans 'lock-on' CSG protest for Pilliga
- Nannas will keep knitting until Metgasco shareholders vote
The new bill includes fining protesters tenfold for trespassing and increasing police power to seize any lock-on device on mere suspicion.
According to the Moby's owner:
"The Dogs of Pilliga Push camp made a brave move today occupying the tray of a truck that some local farmers had held up at the gate. I do hope they don't all get sent off to the pound for this under Baird's new Eco Facist laws!"
