4000 protest against mining outside Parliament

4000 protest against mining outside Parliament:

Up to 4000 people from across the state are staging a noisy rally outside NSW Parliament today, calling for tougher restrictions on coal and coal seam gas mining.

The Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner was shouted at and booed as he tried to reassure the angry crowd the state government would protect agricultural land.

A broad coalition of farmers, rural residents, environmentalists and other activists marched on the Parliament at lunchtime today, banging drums and chanting "country and city united we stand, protect our water, protect our land"
