Protest US Warships with FANG

We headed down to Fremantle Thursday 26th April to protest the arrival of Nuclear Powered USS Carl Vinson and USS Bunker Hill in Fremantle Port and both carrying weapons of mass destruction.

A welcome party put on by the Fremantle chamber of commerce at the Fremantle arts centre was arranged by the mayor of Fremantle Dr Brad Pettitt and the CEO of the Fremantle council under less than ideal circumstances. We can claim a small victory here as news came through that they moved the venue due to hearing that Occupy Perth was planning to attend.

Here is the press release we circulated.

Occupy Joins No Fracking WAy Campaign

Protesting unconventional gas includes shale gas, tight gas and coal seam gas (CSG), No Fracking WAy is a new group formed demanding a moratorium on fracking to ensure safe drinking water, food security, a healthy environment, human health, fire safety and respect for indigenous heritage now and for future generations.

A clear example of the 1% waging war on the 99%, with big business putting at risk risk ecosystem and human health in the pursuit of profit.

Next No Fracking WAy meeting just prior to the Occupy Perth GA 3 May at 17:30 at The Blue Room, 53 James st, Northbridge in the Perth Cultural Centre.
