What we can learn from the struggle for Country and community in the Kimberley.
Nicola Paris has just returned from six months in Broome supporting the community campaign against Woodside’s proposed gas hub.
She’ll be sharing her observations and insights including:
- The role nonviolent direct action has played in delaying work, increasing pressure on the companies involved and bringing international attention over the last two years.
- Findings from interviews with Broome community members about how they came to be arrested for the first time for something they believe in.
- What we can learn from the creative resistance of a small town fighting some of the biggest multinationals in the world – including ideas and tactics to apply in other campaigns.
This is a Melbourne Campaigner’s Network event. MCN holds regular gatherings for campaigners, activists, and organisers to discuss ideas, exchange resources and discover new approaches to social change.
