James Price PointFriday 10th June, 2011

Media attention has been drawn to a 3 day blockade of the road to James Price Point, the proposed location of a $30 billion LNG gas processing hub. The proposed site is just 60 km north of Broome in the heart of some of the most spectacular country along the coast.

About 30 protesters are trying to stop Woodside from starting land-clearing work.  Two anti gas hub protesters were arrested after Police forcibly removed using angle grinders and bolt cutters from the bulldozer they were chained to for over 24 hours.  Both men were charged with breaching a move-on notice.
