MONDAY OCTOBER 15, 2018: MORE than 600 people turned out last Thursday at noon in Perth to remind the West Australian Government that the fracking industry does not have a social licence to operate in the state.
The rally included a micro march to a giant inflatable cow set up on the lawns of parliament house. The cow, named Daisy, was designed to highlight a plan by fracking company Buru Energy to dump it’s polluted fracking waste water into the drinking water of Kimberley cattle.
A petition calling for a permanent, legislated statewide ban on fracking in WA, signed by 14,272 people, was presented to the parliament at the event.
A large banner listing the names of the 22 communities across WA that have already declared themselves gasfield free was also revealed at the rally.

ALBERT WIGGAN from the Kimberley wants his country and the rest of WA to remain Frack Free. Please join him in sending a clear message to Premier Mark McGowan that WA should remain Frack Free. Join Albert's call to have the fracking bans in the south west extended to the rest of the state and for those bans to be protected by legislation. Please call Mark McGowan's office on 6552-5000 and let him know you want a Frack Free WA. And call or email your local MP.
