I started to support just before the Bentley Blockade in the Northern Rivers of NSW, when I retired from my work as a Lismore journalist and joined the Knitting Nannas Against Gas (KNAG). Lock the Gate supported our fight against Metgasco, and we won. I think that's when I committed to becoming a Gatekeeper. I'm no longer a KNAG. Their power structure is untenable, oppressive and unchangeable. But I remain a member and supporter of Lock the Gate.
