Disrupt Burrup Hub staged a silent protest in front of Woodside’s headquarters on September 4 against the West Australian government’s crackdown on protesters engaging in direct action to protest its lack of action on fighting climate change.

The West Australian police have stepped up their harassment of climate protesters, including pulling a gun on 21-year-old activist Emil Davey.

Protesters stood in silence and held signs including: “While climate campaigners are being silenced … Woodside is committing ecocide.”
