Sad news today, as the NSW Supreme Court made a ruling that will see coal seam gas mining resume in the Northern Rivers.
After thousands blockaded at Bentley in protest against coal seam gas activities by the company Metgasco, the NSW government suspended the licence. But Metgasco
challenged the NSW government in court, and this morning the court ruled in their favour. Drilling at Bentley will resume almost immediately.
Is it fair that a multinational company can challenge the government for listening to the concerns of the community?
