Protest Camp Continues Whilst Locals Celebrate Broome at Cable Beach

Week 6 of the Blockade:  Wed 13 July – Wed 20 July


The protest continues – while pre-emptive clearing is occurring a James Price Point community opposition continues and is growing. The video at the bottom of this entry tells the story. Meanwhile, the Broome community is moving to an unprecedented level of action.


The families of Broome have pulled off the biggest event to save the Kimberley ever held! Estimates of how many people turned up vary either side of 5000. That is approximately one-third of the Broome population. If that proportion of Sydney turned out for an event, that would be over one million people. This significant day is already being referred to as the day the tide turned in Broome.


The Pigram Brothers and musical friends including Rob Hirst and Wil Thomas entertained the crowd.  Alan and Steve Pigram, Mitch Torres and Dr Anne Poelina recently returned from Canberra where they met with politicians. They have returned with a renewed purpose and a positive message for the families of Broome. They encouraged everyone to attend this community event to show the companies and the politicians that we care for the Kimberley and see a better future.
