More than 80 activists opposed to coal-seam gas mining had the door closed on them at a meeting of all parties called by Lismore MP Thomas George yesterday at Lismore Workers Club.

A group of 32 invited guests, including Lismore mayor Jenny Dowell, took advantage of the invitation-only meeting to air their views to the executive director of minerals from the Department of Trade and Investment.

The MP said he gave people in the room the opportunity to decide if demonstrators outside should be let in but the meeting itself decided not to.

Mr George, who is unabashedly in support of gas mining, said ‘the only way that we can take this forward is if everyone works together’.

But Leah Hobbs from Kyogle Group Against Gas says Mr George has consistently ignored their requests for a meeting.
