PROTECT YOUR KIMBERLEY Flash Mob Cottesloe - YouTube:
On the 8th December 2012 the National Day of Solidarity for the Kimberley, protests where held around the country and the world to protest the proposed worlds largest gas hub at Walmadan (James Price Point) just north of Broome in the Kimberley region of North Western Australia. This area is a pristine coastline untouched by industry for 40,000years with the culture still intact. The people of these lands along with their many many supporters including John Butler and Missy Higgins staged a protest at Cottesloe Beach, Perth an iconic part of South Western Australia and also the Australian Premier Colin Barnet's backyard. They erected a artificial Gas Plant on the Beach then he sang his Kimberley song to a pumped crowd full of High Vis wearing supporters who chanted 'Shame Barnet". I wonder how he liked having his town over run by Hi Vis wearing workers and a stinking smoking Gas Plant?
