On their side of the fence: triple gates, new perimeter fences around the fort walls, new sentry guards on each corner of the fort, goPro cameras filming our every move, plus sinister-looking industrial equipment to inject the earth with chemicals to despoil the land. On our side of the fence: kids, teens, parents, hippies, dogs, fairies, nannas, seasoned veterans, a rapper with a heart-felt message, a musician with a flute, a girl with a beautiful voice, guitars, voices raised in song together, plus lots of lanterns to light up the darkness with a message of love and hope. Which side do you prefer? Come help us #protectGloucester.

FOURTH DAY OF PEACEFUL PROTEST IN GLOUCESTER GRANDMA TAKES DIRECT ACTION AGAINST AGL
Manning Valley resident, author and grandmother, Sharyn Munro is locked onto an AGL gate this morning to protest the coal seam gas operations in the local community.
Locked on is Sharyn Munro author of RICH LAND WAST LAND
in the forth day of peaceful protest and blockades at the site.
Teams of locals and visitors put themselves in position to block gas fracking workers at three entrances early this morning.
“The beautiful Gloucester Valley is the last place on earth that should be fracked for a coal seam gas field,” said Sharyn Munro, aged 66 and a grandmother of five.
“Until honest and adequate information regarding the impacts on water and health is available, this AGL coal seam gas fracking project should be suspended.
“As I researched my book Rich Land Waste Land, I learned the dangers of coal seam gas projects. That’s why I’m standing up for my community today.”
This is the fourth day of peaceful protest by the residents of Gloucester.
