“The campaign against the proposed LNG gas plant at James Price Point on the Kimberley coast was one of the most extraordinary fights in support of environmental and community values in Australian history. Aboriginal people, environmentalists, business people and ordinary citizens took on global capital, government and vested interests to defend their country and way of life.
Damian Kelly’s remarkable photographs and the shared stories capture the strength and spirit of the NO GAS campaign in all its complexity.”

    This is a wonderful way to commemorate a fight for the environment and the culture that we have here. Honestly without people to speak up for the rights of the land and the country, everything would be exploited to an inch of itself.
