Rocky misquote

TWEED Councillor Katie Milne yesterday told the Tweed Daily News she had been misquoted in a story in Saturday's paper about claims protesters threw rocks during the rally.

Cr Milne said she never claimed “no rocks” had been thrown during the event, but rather that there was “no evidence” to support they had been thrown at Byrrill Creek on the Friday of the rally.

“I said as I believed there were no cars hit,” Cr Milne said.

“I find it hard to believe all these statements that rocks were pelted.

“There was no evidence, no dents as far as I knew.”

She explained her comments were specific to Byrrill Creek on the Friday of last fortnight and that she could not speak for possible rock throwing at other areas as she was not there herself.

Cr Milne also said she believed there was no evidence that protesters were behind the alleged rock throwing incidents, and hinted that it could have been others trying to undermine the cause of rally protesters.

“It could be saboteurs,” she said.

Police are investigating the claims of rock throwing.
