Lock the Gate invites Campbell Newman to Kerry blockade site

Published: January 16, 2012

The Lock the Gate Alliance and Keep the Scenic Rim Scenic have invited LNP leader, Campbell Newman, to visit the Blockade of Arrow Energy’s coal seam gas drill site south of Beaudesert.

Lock the Gate Alliance president, Drew Hutton, said he had sent an invitation to Mr Newman by email, as had the KTSRS, and was hopeful a visit could be arranged in the near future.

“Mr Newman has already made a statement indicating he was in-principle opposed to coal seam gas in the Scenic Rim area,” Mr Hutton said.

“The people involved in this blockade are law-abiding, conservative landowners who want to hear from Mr Newman that an LNP government would listen to them and take necessary measures to protect their livelihoods and their communities.”

Mr Hutton said leaders from both Katter’s Australian Party and the Greens had visited the blockade in the last few says.

This action enters its eighth day tomorrow.
