Protesters return to gas hub site - The West Australian

Protesters return to gas hub site - The West Australian:

The protest season is under way again in Broome, with dry weather conditions signalling a return to work for Woodside and a call to arms for people determined that the proposed gas precinct at James Price Point must not go ahead.

Woodside has resumed its last engineering and environmental investigations as well as offshore surveys along the pipeline route and production facilities.

Protesters, including a camel drawing a "chariot" and a convoy of vehicles, embarked on a two-hour walk yesterday to reopen the Manari Road camp that is the base for their activities.

Goolarabooloo man Philip Roe met protesters in front of a "Welcome to country" sign warning of fines of up to $100,000 and two years jail for disturbing or damaging Aboriginal sites.
Premier Colin Barnett reiterated his commitment to developing the site. "You can have a major new industry without compromising the environment and living conditions," he said.
