On Sunday 17th October 2010 over 2000 Broome locals marched from the Male oval to Town Beach to say “No Gas on the Kimberley Coast”.
Considering the population of Broome we think this might be the biggest march and rally ever held in Australia (per capita)? – If the same percentage of the population marched in Sydney there would have been almost half a million people.
An inspirational success the event attracted people of all ages and walks of life. Inspiring speaches, music, information stalls and even circus for the kids awaited marchers on arrival. Save The Kimberley Co-Chair Neilo McKenzie and Law Boss Joseph Roe spoke well as did everyone else and the diversity, originality and message of the banners, placards, t-shirts and even dogs was just inspirational.
Save The Kimberley is proud to have supported this community event. The tide has turned..
