Kimberley Calling: The Frack is Back

The WA moratorium on fracking is to be lifted in the Kimberley next month, with an estimated 40,000 wells set to be drilled across the region. Meanwhile big agribusiness is making moves to put a developmental squeeze on the iconic Fitzroy River. Once again, Tradional Owners & local environment groups are putting the call out for grass roots supporters around the country to get ready to mobilise for another gigantic battle to protect the unique ecological & cultural diversity of this vast and stunningly pristine landscape. 

With guests: Dr Anne Poelina, Martuwarra Fitzroy River Council; Martin Pritchard, Environs Kimberley; and guest presenter Viv Malo from The Black Block
