Photos from Perth's oil spill protest
On Friday 30 October, volunteers gathered in a colourful action to protest against the oil spill and campaign for greater protection of our Kimberley marine life!
On 21 August, an oil/gas well off the Kimberley coast blew out, uncontrollably spewing oil into the ocean. Since then, the oil has spread through an area known as a marine wildlife super-highway, and now covers thousands of square kilometres of turtle, whale, dolphin and fish habitat.
Want to support this action?
You can take part in this action regardless of where you live. We're asking everyone who is as outraged as we are to contact the oil and gas industry's representatives APPEA and our Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd.
