Perth & Fremantle


6:30pm Thursday 28 October


Public forum with Kathy Watson (Nygina & Jabirr descendant), Steve McCartney (WA State Secretary AMWU), Kamala Emanuel (Socialist Alliance), Brooke Anderton (Marine Scientist), Lara Menkens (The Aboriginal Party, former ALS Lawyer), Kimberley Land Council representative (invited). MUA Hall, 2-4 Kwong Alley, North Fremantle. Organised by Fremantle Socialist Alliance & The Aboriginal Party. Entry by donation. MORE INFO: 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.
