Fight for the Bight


Coastal whale peoples from all over are concerned about oil drilling operations in the Southern Ocean's Great Bight. Norwegian multi-national Equinor released an environmental impact statement earlier this year for a proposed oil drilling site 372 km off the coast of South Australia. The document included a map showing the worst-case oil spill scenarios.

Uncle Bunna Lawrie, Elder & Whale Songman, Keeper of the Songs and Laws for the Mirning people yarns up about travelling to Norway last month with a posse of non-Indigenous supporters to protest at Equinor's AGM.
