Grandmothers fined over Broome gas protest | The Australian

Grandmothers fined over Broome gas protest | The Australian: The two women issued a statement following their appearance in the Broome Magistrates Court on Monday saying they had wanted to draw attention to their campaign.

"My only regret is that we couldn't stop Woodside's work entirely," Ms Batten said.

Ms Weguelin added: "We wanted to show that the Broome community does not want this development. We are local residents objecting to what is happening here. We are looking after the future of our town."

On the 18th of May 2012 a lock on action was initiated on Manari Road, near James Price Point; with the objective of stopping Woodside's convoy of equipment and machinery. In this short clip, the police clear our possessions from the van in an attempt to remove our lock on devices. We had no problem with the police shown in this video - we were there to stop Woodside's access to Country.
