Kimberley Activists Face Off with Private Security in Defense of James Price Point

I just arrived in Broome to stay with activists who are on the ground defending James Price Point from oil company invasion. The release of the “strategic assessment” is due in a week, and the gas hub not approved yet, but Woodside Petroleum is already preparing to clear brush and set up camps.

The blog Hands Off Country is documenting the defense and latest news, including court cases related to native title issues and the manipulation of the legal system by interests favorable to the industrialization of the Kimberley coast.
