Shame, shame, shame Barry O'Farrell, Thomas George and Don Page!!
You have not listened to the will of the people. 88% of Lismore people have voted against this industry in the Northern Rivers and three days later you come up with this!! Well, the fight is on; you will have grandmothers like me locking ourselves on to bulldozers!
"Thoroughly assessed the industry" indeed! If you had, there is no way you would give it the green light. We have done more research ourselves. How many gas fields have you visited? How many sick children have you seen pictures of? How many devastated farmers have you visited? Well, I and many others have. We have done bus tours of the Darling Downs and had farmers as tour guides and seen for ourselves the devastation, destruction and depression this is causing there.
Thousands of us will mobilise to stop this happening in our beautiful Northern Rivers, so be warned. As Thomas and Don know very well, I and my husband John have always been faithful National Party supporters, but no more. Not while you are "100% behind this industry."
