Vic protesters against gas import terminal


Dozens of protesters have gathered on the doorstep of Australian energy supplier AGL’s annual meeting in Melbourne, rallying against its plans for a floating gas processing factory in Victoria.

AGL plans to build a gas import terminal in Westernport Bay – protected by a wetlands conservation covenant – and the protesters say the project is polluting and would dump chlorinated water into the bay.

Save Westernport co-founder Julia Stockigt told AAP customers would pay more for gas if the plans went ahead, while an environmental impacts statement was yet to be done into its impact on the area’s endangered species.
