Two rallies on future water security proceeded through Sydney on Thursday, with farmers and traditional owners from northern New South Wales protesting against the proposed Hunter gas pipeline, and farmers from southern NSW marching against proposed water buybacks in the Murray-Darling Basin.

About 1,000 demonstrators marched to the steps of Santos’ Sydney office, delivering a letter to demand an end to a $3.6bn gas project in western NSW. Representatives from the Gomeroi nation, the Country Women’s Association, Unions NSW, NSW Farmers and Lock the Gate signed the letter.
