The Bentley protectors’ camp just out of Lismore, has been set up since January on a supportive farmer’s land as a peaceful activists’ base for several hundred and at times 2,000 or so Northern Rivers citizens to express strong opposition to this polluting, destructive industry.
The camp has grown into a highly organised cooperative and good spirited village.
If you can’t come to the Bentley village, please come to the Bentley Benefit at the New Leaf Cafe in Murwillumbah this Saturday at 6pm.
Phil Laird, national coordinator of the Lock the Gate Alliance, Michael McNamara, from Lock the Tweed and Sledge, from the Northern Rivers Guardians, will give us an update.
Singers and musicians will play laid back music (so we can hear each other). Great food will be available.
The cost is $20 and after covering costs the money will go directly into the dedicated account set up by the Nimbin Environment Centre, to help to keep the protectors village going strong.
