Dear Murujuga/Burrup/FARA supporters,
Climate action campaigners have recently been focusing unprecedented attention on Woodside’s highly destructive plans for its proposed Burrup Hub expansion, which according to the Conservation Council of Western Australia, if approved would be:
The most polluting fossil fuel project ever to be developed in Australia, with a total carbon footprint of around 6 billion tonnes over its 50-year life, and combined annual emissions of 139 million tonnes – roughly four times the annual pollution of the proposed Adani coal mine.
It’s obviously critical that Burrup rock art campaigners collaborate closely with our friends in the climate action movement to oppose Woodside’s climate and cultural heritage- wrecking plans. That’s why we are encouraging FARA supporters in Perth to attend this event on Saturday:
Climate Crisis National Day of Action
3pm Saturday 22 February,
Pioneer Park, Fremantle (opposite Freo train station)
Please wear your FARA T-Shirt and look for FARA’s ‘Burrup industrial emissions’ banner.
You may also enjoy attending these other two events nearby after the rally:
- Sculptures at Bathers Beach exhibition
- Free open air Pigram Brothers concert at Quarantine Park (continuing into the evening)
FARA has also been active at the ‘People’s Climate Assembly’ which has been established directly across the road from State Parliament for the duration of Burrup Hub debate (expected to last until March). We encourage you to drop in, say hello and discuss the Burrup rock art issue with our friends in the climate action movement.
