Kimberley gas hub: land rights not compulsory aquisition

Public forum: Kimberley Gas Hub
No compulsory aquisition, Yes to land rights

On September 2 Premier Colin Barnett announced that the government will forcibly acquire land at James Price Point, 60km north of Broome.

Barnett wants to help Woodside Petroleum speed ahead with a multi-billion dollar LNG processing facility. Yet again the WA government is trampling on Aboriginal rights to help a multi-national company make a huge profit.

Come hear about the key issues relating to this project: environmental, legal, the rights of Aboriginal people, trade union & Aboriginal alliances.
