4am is not my friend but this guy is. Darren invited me to make the hour-long pre-dawn drive to the Bentley Blockade in Northern NSW, where hundreds of people from all walks of life and political persuasions were protesting against Metgasco’s controversial gas exploration drill site. The groundswell of community support was so powerful that the NSW government suspended Metgasco’s exploration licence at the site four months after the blockade was set up.
