Save Our Songlines: A campaign of the Murujuga

Sunday, 16 October 2022 - 11:00am to 11:30am

Earth Matters speaks with Raelene Cooper from the Save Our Songlines campaign against over-development of the Murujuga in Burrup Peninsula, Western Australia. The campaign has been vocal against the Woodside Scarborough Gas plant and more recently a proposed Urea fertilizer plant. Raelene details the campaign, discusses solutions for the region and talks about the need for proper consent and consultation with First Nations people in any development across Australia.

To follow the campaign, check out the Save Our Songlines website and social media. For those interested, a paper published earlier this year also details how industrial emissions from projects could risk degrading rock art at the Burrup.
