VIDEO: Melbourne holds vigil protest against gas drilling in Kimberley

About 70 people gathered for a vigil in Melbourne on May 15, in support of the community campaign against a gas hub in the Kimberley region, WA.

Earlier, more than 100 police arrived at the site of a peaceful blockade near James Price Point to crush the ongoing protest.

The organisers said: "We need as many people as possible to show our support for those blockading, and send a message to police and Joint Venture Partners that brutality and intimidation will not discourage us; it will only make us stronger."

The Melbourne vigil was held outside BHP's head office. Video taken by Sean Bedlam.
