|Woodside Turkey Dam at the proposed LNG Site ay James Price Point for investigation only|
24 June 2012
A massive banner has today been unfurled inside Woodside’s work area by members of the Broome community.
Approximately 115 people entered the site where preliminary work has begun for the proposed gas hub.
Community members questioned the integrity of the Environmental Protection Authority’s report on James Price Point due out next week after learning that only one of the five members of the board were free from conflict of interest.
‘The Broome community is outraged that we’ve been mislead into believing the EPA assessment would be free from bias. Said Nik Wevers of the Broome Community No Gas Campaign.
‘After waiting for 18 months for the EPA assessment to come out and then to learn that it is not independent is completely outrageous.’ Concluded Wevers.
‘We bought out the biggest banner we’ve got today and it’s dwarfed by the clearing work that’s already occurred. If built, the gas hub itself will by 5 squared kilometres and will take thousands of people will be required just for construction’ said Philip Roe, Goolarabooloo Traditional Owner.
‘A project of this scale will destroy a pristine area of coastline and culture and will forever change the town of Broome
‘Woodside and the joint venture partners are ignoring the wishes of the Goolarabooloo and the people of Broome, by forcing an unwanted gas hub upon us’
