Battle for James Price Point 5th July 2011

NAIDOC Week in Broome

On this day, the anniversary of the passing of Paddy Roe OAM, the fourth day of the Lurujarri Heritage Trail Walk and the twenty ninth day of The Blockade, the Western Australian Riot Police and Woodside Energy mowed down people, forcing them to run for their lives on Manari Road.

and while the Kimberley Land Council were cosily meeting with Woodside Energy at the Mangrove Hotel function room, their countrymen were being carted away by police in their vans, having been forced to the ground while trying to protect their heritage and culture.

Frightening tactics

Brutal crowd control tactics used by more than 70 Police personnel against people on Manari road.

The protesters moved into a walking pace and then the police, with a strange low chant and without warning suddenly ran at the crowd and stampeded them

People were thrown off the road by Police and many ran for their lives as bulldozers roared down the road at breakneck speed

more arrests

There is no social licence to operate.

Hands off country
