Highways lined to lock the gates

NO GASFIELDS HERE: Stationed at Riddoch Highway on Saturday morning, Sophie Henke, Briony Schriever, Michael Walsh and Tony Beck protest Beach Energy’s proposed exploratory drilling project south of Penola.

REGIONAL gas mining opponents lined the region’s highways on Saturday as part of a national roadside protest to ‘lock the gate’ to invasive gas mining.

While the national campaign aimed to demand the protection of nationally significant water resources, locals protested ahead of a multi-million-dollar exploration drilling project set to begin south of Penola in August.

Concerned residents, landowners and stakeholders waved homemade banners
