The news about GAFCON is starting to be covered in more and more venues. The Australian newspaper, The Age has coverage from a local angle that highlights the role of the Archbishop of Sydney.
Archbishop Jensen is planning on traveling to Jerusalem next week and hopes that he and Archbishop Akinola, the primary organizers of the meeting will have a chance to meet with the Bishop of Jerusalem:
"Outspoken Anglican Archbishop Peter Jensen is galvanising opposition to homosexuality in the church, in the lead-up to an unofficial meeting of conservative bishops in Jerusalem.
As rifts in the worldwide Anglican Church threaten to become a schism, the Sydney Archbishop said American Anglicans had become missionaries for homosexuality in defiance of the Bible and Anglican teaching.
...Dr Jensen, the main Western leader of the conservative evangelical strand, said he hoped to meet Bishop Dawani in Jerusalem next week. Nigerian Archbishop Peter Akinola, the other main conservative Anglican leader, will be there too."

There is additional coverage in "The Australian" that mentions the local opposition to Archbishop Jensen's actions:
"Moderate voices in the Australian Anglican Church yesterday criticised the decision to hold a separate conference, which some see as a challenge to the authority of the Lambeth Conference.
Anglican Bishop Tom Frame, the director of St Mark's National Theological Centre in Canberra and head of the School of Theology at Charles Sturt University, said: "It can only be construed as a provocative gesture. Any international gathering of only part of the Anglican Communion might suggest, in the minds of some, that an alternative force to the Anglican conference is coming in to existence.""
