Traditional owners and community activists confront Woodside Petroleum
Broome activists and Traditional Owners confronted Woodside Petroleum at the proposed gas refinery near James Price Point.
Woodside Petroleum is conducting seismic testing for their proposed industrial gas refinery site ahead of gaining Federal environmental approval for the project.
Community activists said that Woodside is riding roughshod over local communities and forcing their time lines without respect for the environment and community concern.
“It is obvious that Woodside doesn’t care about proper process, the feelings of the community or the environment and is hellbent on forcing the industrialisation of the Kimberley at any cost” said ….
“Our community is not going to allow neither Woodside nor any other oil and gas company to come in and wreck our country, the social fabric of our town nor are we going to allow the Kimberley to become a quarry for the rest of the world.
Community activists said that they will continue to delay the proposal for as long as it takes.
“Continuing delays will lead to share holder pressure pushing for more socially and environmentally acceptable sites in the Pilbara”, said....
