|Bob Irwin joins the Tara Blockade (Six Degrees)|
Simon Unwin talks with Jacinta Green from Sydney Residents Against Coal Seam Gas regarding a drilling project proposed for the inner Sydney suburb of St Peters. The drilling will likely supply gas for the City of Sydney's planned trigeneration scheme. There will be a film screening of Gasland, May 5th, 630pm at Addison Rd community centre.
We also hear from Drew Hutton, campaigner from Friends of the Earth and the Lock the Gate campaign, about the community of Tara, QLD, who have been blockading the operations of QGC who plan extensive coal seam gas operations in the Surat Basin. The audio was recorded at the 'Cant eat coal, cant drink gas' rally in Sydney, March 2011.
