Davey Bob Ramsey, the man who locked himself to a bulldozer at Metgasco’s CSG wastewater ponds near Casino last month, faces court on Wednesday.
He will be represented by Environmental Defenders Office solicitor Sue Higginson.
Lock the Gate Northern Rivers is encouraging community members to attend court in support of Davey Bob but is asking them to act respectfully.
‘Those inside the court house are encouraged to wear badges and t-shirts, although the public viewing area is quite small, so be prepared to be outside. Banners and placards are more than welcome for those outside the court,’ a spokesperson said.
‘It must be stressed that courts are not political forums and it would not do well for Davey Bob’s cause for it to be presented as such.’
The matter is listed for 9.30am, but because of the court process, the actual hearing may occur anytime throughout the day.
The Casino Local Court is located on the corner of Richmond and Walker streets, Casino.
