The easiest way you can help with a simple 5 min phone call. The NSW Premier is getting a lot of calls asking him to respect community democracy, to call off Operation Stapler, a police plan to break up protests stopping the wonderful Northern Rivers region becoming a gasfield. He needs more, a lot more. This tactic and the political fuss being made in Sydney is making a difference.
If you are have some extra time, the office of the Police Minister is also well worth a call – (02) 9228 5276. You can find contact details for all the key Ministers in the NSW Government, plus some extra information on points to make when you call, here.
An even better way to stop this police operation is to get there in the next few days. Extra bodies on the ground at the campsite is a very important disincentive for this police action. All the TV stations are camping there this weekend and we want them to film a wonderful community atmosphere rather than a police action. If you are coming from Brisbane, we may be able to give you a lift. Otherwise, visit www.BentleyBlockade.org and follow #BentleyBlockade on Twitter for all the info you need.
