Santos plans for a Coal seam gas field in the Pilliga region of western NSW has met stiff opposition from local farmers and traditional owners. A Santos test site was occupied today by 120 people in a mass civil disobedience action. 120 people joined traditional owners from the Gamilaraay / Gomeroi mob in occupying the Leewood site and equipment where Santos hopes to build a waste water treatment plant for contaminated water from drilling gas wells.
