VIDEO: City, country unite to protect land & water from CSG

Country and city united in a 5000 person strong march on NSW parliament on May 1 to protest against the threat coal seam gas mining companies pose to precious farming land and water supplies.

Before the rally, NSW Resources and Energy minister Chris Hartcher tried to frighten off rural support by ridiculously claiming the rally was run by the Socialist Alliance (which is just one group building this broad alliance). Hartcher's redbaiting fell flat.
