Fight for the Bight

Posted on: Sun 9 Jun 2019

Coastal whale peoples from all over are concerned about oil drilling operations in the Great Australian Bight. Norwegian multi-national Equinor released an environmental impact statement earlier this year for a proposed oil drilling site 372 km off the coast of South Australia.

The document included a map showing the worst-case oil spill scenarios.

Uncle Bunna Lawrie –  Elder & Whale Songman – Keeper of the Songs and Laws for the Mirning people, talks to 3CR’s Nicky Stott about his trip to Norway last month with a group of non-Indigenous supporters to protest at Equinor’s AGM.
