“Having your family and community in a gasfield is a worrying thing. The mining companies bring nothing to the table. We’ve asked them, ‘What can you give us?’ and they can’t answer.
"As a whole this community naively felt this area is so special and so important as an agricultural resource that there’s no way in the world that there’ll ever be mining here; like it’s just stupid.”
Ruth Armstrong - farmer at Cecil Plains on the Darling Downs
