Woodside's Illegal Road Works On Manari Road south of James Price Poin

What needs to be made clear in this video is the fact that the Broome Shire grader had just completed grading the road. What you are witnessing is Woodside using their equipment and undertaking their own road works which is highly illegal, hazardous and they should be prosecuted either by the Broome Shire Council and or the Department of Main Roads. This work was done in order to create a deep dangerous sandy pit, forcing people to slow down or spin out. This allows time for hostiles (Lockforce) Woodside corporate security thugs enough time to record number plates and photograph people who in travelling in Country.
