John Butler | musicians protest Kimberley gas hub

John Butler | musicians protest Kimberley gas hub

It is all part of an Australia-wide campaign to stop the gas hub from going ahead, with Jimmy Barnes joining Rob Hirst and Dom Turner from Backsliders performing in Sydney, while Shane Howard, Bart Willoughby, Tonchi McIntosh and Andy Reid will be staging their protest outside BHP in Melbourne this afternoon.

Meanwhile, back in Broome the Pigram Brothers and numerous other local artists and musicians staged their own "rebel Busk" protest outside Woodside's Offices in Broome

Save The Kimberley

Barnes, alongside the Backsliders, entertained a lunch-time crowd on Sydney's Market Street as part of a national ''rebel busk'' day.

Barnes said the campaign was to raise awareness about an alternative to what he said would be destruction of Broome and the Kimberley coastline in WA.
