Thousands protest privatisation of Australian electricity industry
Tuesday, February 26, 2008
Mr Gibson was reported as saying, "I'm a member of the Australian Labor Party and I'm sticking to the Labor platform and policy."
The Government seems to have ignored the positions of the protesters, with Premier Morris Iemma expressing to the first sitting of Parliament for 2008 that his Government's plans would proceed.
Related instances in Tamworth occurred, when workers in the Electricity Trade Union walked off the job.
