Over the past week landscape photographer Christian Fletcher has blogged about James Price Point in the Kimberly and the difference that photographers can make.  Because formal negotiations with the traditional indigenous owners have not resulted in the desired outcome after two years, the West Australian government is planning to compulsory acquire this wilderness land in order to build a 30 billion dollar gas processing plant. There are serious concerns not only about the process being undertaken, but the inevitable environmental impact on what Christian says is the one area of the Kimberley Coast that is easily accessible without boat or helicopter.

Christian is now imploring everyone to sign GetUp’s petition to stop the compulsory acquisition and hopefully, stop the gas plant. Add your voice now!
