***Next Monday, 3rd August on ABC TV’s Australian Story will tell the story of ‘Lock the Gate’ campaign founder, Drew Hutton. I imagine it will be inspirational . For twitchers, \#australianstory and \#lockthegate.***
No doubt many of you have seen the yellow triangles of Lock the Gate campaign along the coastal areas.
Lock the Gate is a form of peaceful protest designed to show mining companies and the government that the farmers and farming communities are determined to save their land and their futures on the land.
They are concerned about the devastation as roads and pipes criss cross their, usually good, farming land, the future of priceless water and chemicals and escaping methane.
This should be an very interesting Australian story
