Broome no gas Rally Dec 2011-Mobile.m4v - YouTube

Interestingly, there was no TV coverage of the Broome Community NO GAS Rally yesterday. When the police apparently acting on orders from above (state government) came in unbelievable force to traumatised and collapse a blockade that was put in place to stop the criminal and unlawful destruction of our cultural heritage cameras were everywhere.

Media loved the violence and the trauma inflicted on us. The State Government loved it because it sent a message to everyone in the state and if you question, blockage or attempt to stop a corporation like Woodside in the quest of greed, you will be put down.

Why didn’t the media want a feel good story about a community celebrating its tenacity?
