Protesters stop work at gas hub
The West Australian
Broome residents have forced the shutdown of two Woodside drilling rigs at the site of the proposed gas hub at James Price Point this morning.
A Broome Community No Gas Campaign spokesman said Evan Dowlings and Frances Myles from the Goolarabooloo community scaled the rigs about 5.30am after allegations that “Woodside had actively sought to silence information around the heritage values of the site and the government’s repeated failure to enforce the Aboriginal Heritage Act”.
