Website of Responsible Mining group destroyed

Illawarra Residents for Responsible Mining (IRRM) group organises a protest against the unrestricted expansion of the Gujerat NRE coal mine at Wollongong. They also appologise that they could not provide a link to their website because it was hacked and destroyed! What do you think would motivate a common garden hacker to destroy a website of an environmental group? Were there hackers or professionals?

Dear All,

For those of you who are not busy on Friday with preparations for the Rivers SOS Meeting this weekend......

Protest at Wollongong State Government Offices this Friday - No more "alternative" mining approvals for Gujarat NRE - hope you can come.

When: Friday, 20 April at 12.30pm
Where: Outside State Govt Office Block, 84 Crown St, Wollongong
Why: Recently the NSW State Govt's Division of Resources and Energy (DRE) approved longwall mining by Gujarat NRE using an "alternative approval process". Bypassing the usual Dept of Planning requirements, DRE approved longwall mining in Longwall 4, in a process that was controversial, devoid of transparency and totally lacking in community consultation.

Come and rally with local residents and concerned citizens to:
- Call on DRE to withdraw the approval for Longwall 4, reject any further applications under Part 5 of the EP & A Act and direct these applications through the appropriate Dept of Planning (DoP) process.
- Call on DoP to stop operations at NRE No. 1 Colliery until NRE has fulfilled all the requirements of its Preliminary Works Approval.

You can confirm you will be there on Facebook:
(We would refer you to our website, but it was recently hacked into and destroyed...)

Kind regards,
Kaye Osborn
