Central Coast man charged in Pilliga forest coal seam gas protest

Central Coast man charged in Pilliga forest coal seam gas protest

By JOANNE MCCARTHY Newcastle Herald

A CENTRAL Coast man was arrested in the Pilliga forest outside Narrabri on Thursday as protesters ramp up a campaign against Santos plans for 850 coal seam gas wells in the forest.

Carpenter Jason Joll, of Calga, was charged with trespass after walking inside Santos’ Leewood coal seam gas wastewater treatment facility construction area.

He joined the protest to draw attention to Santos’ broader plan for 850 wells in the Pilliga. The Leewood facility is designed to treat up to one million litres of coal seam gas wastewater each day from exploratory works in the forest, and is under construction without development consent.

Mr Joll, 49, was shocked at the size of the project which protesters say threatens the Great Artesian Basin.

Gabrielle Laver, a 44-year-old from Tabulum, was arrested and charged with disobeying directives and obstruction for delaying a convoy of trucks entering the Leewood site.

The organisation Pilliga Action Camp claimed the protest was peaceful and police dragged Gabrielle from the road to allow the convoy to proceed.

Forty-nine-year-old Central Coast man Jason Jol was arrested and charged with trespassing on the inside of the facility where he ventured to halt to work on site.

Mike Baird changes tack on coal as NSW starts to prepare for industry's decline

Peter Hannam - Sydney Morning Herald

The government has met with a series of anti-mining activists amid slumping industry fortunes, apparently making good on a pledge to give more equal weight to environmental and social issues when considering mine approvals.

The conciliatory approach with activists comes at a crucial time for the coal mining industry, with Premier Mike Baird's government considering approvals to mine 1.2 billion tonnes, after approving 1.8 billion tonnes of new coal mining since he became premier.
