What was there to hide? Waratah Coal silences media in farce of ‘community consultation’, Sept 2010
Waratah Coal denied meaningful community engagement and scrutiny when a company official running a ‘consultation’ meeting in Clermont in September (2010) aggressively refused an independent international film-maker from recording the meeting – threatening to call the meeting to a close and accusing the film-maker of lying.
The official’s outburst flies in the face of Australian law, which stipulates that filming is allowed at such events. By taking the stance that he did, the Waratah official has given the definite impression that the company has something to hide.
