You will see from my previous posts that I welcome some serious attention political to this oil spill.
THE WILDERNESS SOCIETY WA
Tell the oil and gas industry:
'Never Again - Protection not Pollution!'On August 21 2009, an oil/gas well being drilled from the West Atlas oil rig off Australia’s north west Kimberley coast blew out, uncontrollably spewing oil into the ocean. Since then the oil has spread through an area known as a marine wildlife super-highway, now covering thousands of square kilometres of turtle, whale, dolphin and fish habitat.
This an environmental disaster in a pristine area, and the oil and gas industry must be held to account.
Join us this Friday 30th November as we say "Never Again - Protection not Pollution".
Visit www.wilderness.org.au/oilspill for more information.
Flash mob: To set the scene we will have volunteers covered in oil, standing in barrels, representing the plethora of marine life affected by the spill. Dress in black & join us to protest against the oil spill and campaign for greater protection of our Kimberley marine life!
