Australian Humanities Review: Politics, Protest and Performativity: The Broome Community's 'No Gas on the Kimberley Coast' Campaign
http://www.australianhumanitiesreview.org/archive/Issue-November-2012/mu...
Issue 53, Nov 12: "In Broome, Western Australia (WA), 5 July 2011 is now known as Black Tuesday. At dawn on that day I found myself standing on the red dust of Manari Road amongst some 250 Broome locals, singing songs from Jimmy Chi’s musical Bran Nue Dae in the face of 100 gathering riot police. It was a pivotal moment in an extraordinary, and continuing, campaign." By Kathie Muir

15 Jul 11: "Mitch Torres, Aboriginal filmmaker and director, and Mikuak Rai, activist and musical artist, are interviewed by Wanique Shabazz of WRFG 89.3 FM Atlanta about the resistance that indigenous Australians are putting up against the imposition of an oil complex being built on their sacred lands. Please share this 3-part interview so that others, worldwide, may become aware of this situation. We must let the Australian government and the multinational oil companies know that this disregard will not and cannot be tolerated any longer. This is the true meaning of the 2012 shift...uplifting each other and harmonizing with the Ancient-Future ways of Universal Wisdom and Oneness."

5 Jul 11: "What begun as an inspiring peaceful protest by indigenous people and the broome community to block woodside workers from continuing the destruction of james price point (Walmadan),escalated into an aggresive scene by the afternoon. On the morning of the 5th of July 2011 woodside pressured the police into assisting them to carry out their 'lawful' duties, to clear pristine wilderness land in endangered bilby habitat, along the Lurujarri Heritage trail and within culturally sacred sites (burial grounds), without consent from traditional owners, permits or approvals from the government."

24 Mar 10: "The Wilderness Society has combined with Traditional Owners and the local Kimberley community to produce a powerful 30 second TV ad. The commercial highlights the importance of the Kimberley environment and the threat of proposed industrialisation at James Price Point near Broome. Filmed onsite and featuring Indigenous Traditional Owner Neil McKenzie, the ad is designed to encourage action and will be crucial in combating Government and industry spin that presents the proposed development as a done deal."
