Protesters threaten more fuel blockades

Protesters have threatened to return to the refineries if the Government does not bring down tax on fuel.
Farmer and haulier Andrew Spence, a spokesman for the Fuel Lobby, said refineries would be blockaded from 6am next Wednesday, September 14, if cuts were not seen.

The lobby said it was prepared to re-create the week-long protests of September 2000 which caused shortages and panic buying at the pumps.
