Protest and blockade, James Price Point, Days 19 and 20
Days 19 and 20 Another weekend is on us and the protest blockade is going as strong as ever. New faces are appearing all the time from Broome, the Kimberley, interstate and overseas. Progress with the complaint to the Department of Indigenous affairs has been slow and steady with investigations ongoing. Woodside contractors are more cautious than ever and no longer approach the blockade as a convoy, instead parking up the road and sending security people forward to be turned back again. The camp is in good spirits and well provisioned, but help and donations are always needed. Friday night a local celebrated her 60th birthday with friends, comrades and even a few visiting backpackers and tourists out at the camp, a slice of cake and a 60′s sing along around the campfire was enjoyed by all.
