Water is life. But right now companies like Black Mountain and Buru Energy are looking to open up the Kimberley to fracking, and the pristine Martuwarra Fitzroy River is at risk of being poisoned before it’s protected.
If fracking corporations have their way, thousands of wells will be drilled across the Kimberley, risking leaking toxic ‘forever’ chemicals into our groundwater and releasing millions of tonnes of emissions.
Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek has promised to put stronger water protections in our national environment laws – but not until next year, when there could already be significant damage to water, land, and climate.
Traditional Owners and local communities have defended Western Australia from fracking for over a decade, and together, we can demonstrate a huge show of support for the Minister to take immediate action. The fracking industry is here now, and we can show the government that our regulations must catch up before it's too late.
Join us to hear from experts from organisations including 350 Boorloo Perth, Environs Kimberley, and Doctors for the Environment, to find out how we can build a grassroots movement here in WA to ensure we have climate laws that work for communities not corporations.
With your help we can keep the iconic Kimberley region frack free and our water and climate safe for generations to come.
