Miners’ case against #leardblockade: Anyone like to respond?

Opinion: Time to get tough on extremists ignoring the law 22nd January 2014 Originally published in The Daily Telegraph. By NSW Minerals Council CEO, Stephen Galilee This Australia Day weekend, most of us will gather with friends and family to celebrate our nation. In stark contrast, a small group of extreme activists will be gathering in a state forest this weekend for training on how to flout the laws the rest of us are bound by, putting themselves and others at risk of injury or worse.

Can Leard Forest be saved? @georgefwoods reports on #leardblockade
