CSG drilling rig blockaded in Coonabarabran N.S.W.

A two semi trailer CSG drill rig owned by Condor Energy has been blockaded in Coonabarabran N.S.W. this morning.
 No CSG activist Dan Lanzini reports that the blockade began about 8 a.m. today. 
Dan says " the whole community of NSW is over 90% against unconventional gas and fracking and we have seen huge problems with this industry already with B,T,E,X contamination in Gloucester, Uranium in an aquifer in the Pilliga and ground water pressure dropping all over south east QLD
Santos and the NSW Government your plans to develop CSG in NSW are over the community will not have a part of it and are ready for action"The Condor Energy owned convoy which was spotted about 10 p.m. last night has been parked overnight outside the Coonabarabran Public School. 
 Coonabarabran residents are acutely aware and concerned at the devastating impacts CSG extraction has had on water and the environment in other places and are resolute in their commitment to Stop dirty CSG extraction in their or anyone elses neighbourhood.

 Occupy Sydney are in solidarity with the blockade and all efforts to stop further fossil fuel extraction. Occupier Sara said " I don't understand why a government would not do all in its power to end dirty fossil fuel extraction when we have so many opportunities to provide clean Solar , Wind and Tidal Energy."
 Are you buying your energy from AGL or Origin or an expensive conventional supplier? There are options which are cheaper if you just switch supplier. They are all owned by hydro power companies.

N.S.W. Police illegal spying on Facebook account called criminal by magistrate

We have known for a long time that N.S.W. Police use widespread illegal spying. Up until now they have been emboldened by judicial blindness.

Finally a magistrate has spoken out in a case where police had an unauthorised surveillance of a facebook account which led to charges against the alleged account holder calling out police actions as illegal.

  At Occupy Sydney we are well versed in illegal police activity. We see police cars speeding and parking illegally on a daily basis. We know where some of the street surveillance camera blindspots are which police routinely use to illegally search and harass young people out enjoying themselves in Sydney. We regularly get cameras in their faces when they are doing these illegal searches and some of us have been arrested. We know that the October 23rd 2011 mass police attack on the Occupy Sydney occupation and the further attacks as Occupy Sydney continued the 24-7 occupation were illegal. We know that police have support from the highest political offices to carry out their illegal actions. This farcical appeal process was instigated by then premier Barry O'Farrell. They lost. The DPP took over 12 months to pay the ordered court costs.

 This case is another of police exceeding their powers at the very time they are calling for the so called independent police watchdog to be disbanded. When called out by the learned magistrate senior police attempted to use the public interest to protect police from further scrutiny. Read More Here
