In aide of the ‘Save The Kimberley’ campaign, SASEN is putting on a benefit gig here in Adelaide to raise much needed funds and awareness for the cause. Supported by ASEN, The Wilderness Society and the Save The Kimberley campaign, its sure to be an awesome night!
The amazing local community members from around Broome in W.A. have banded together to put a stop to their beautiful home being exploited by Industrialisation. One of the imposing threats is from the mining giants – Woodside, Shell, Chevron, BP and BHP as well as the Premier of WA, Colin Barnett are pushing for a 2500ha gas processing plant development at James Price Point, just north of Broome. For more info, visit www.savethekimberley.com
Since early June, the local community have been blockading the proposed gas plant site, and have weathered police violence, industrial bullies with bulldozers as well as bush fires this week. They need support from the rest of the country – this is where we come in!

There will also be a petition banner to write a message & sign on the night.
All funds and the banner will be taken up to Broome and presented to the members of the ‘Save The Kimberley’ campaign.
There is also an opportunity for someone to join a few of us travelling up to Broome in mid September to present our banner and funds raised to the local community.
If you’re interested in coming with us, email me for details 🙂 firstname.lastname@example.org
Join us on Sunday 6th June for the much anticipated documentary ‘The Leftovers’ is a road trip adventure about people who eat trash. TurnStyle – 10 Laura St, Highgate Hill, Qld from 6:30pm.
Meet Mykal and Paul, two experienced Dumpster Divers as they embark on a journey down the east coast of Australia. Wanting to make a statement about today’s over consuming society they challenged themselves to live of nothing but waste.
Leaving their money behind they power their van with waste veggie oil and eat out of bins along the way. They bring with them three brave apprentices. For the least experienced of the team – will their first adrenalin-pumping dive into dumpster living be remembered as the dawn of a new age; or the holiday from hell?
There will also be brownies and chai for sale as a fundraisers for the Brisbane contingent to get to the Students of Sustainability Conference in Adelaide.
