Woodside’s Browse project is a climate wrecker
Check out Midnight Oil's mic drop moment
13 October 2022
Iconic protest band Midnight Oil had a stellar mic drop moment against Woodside.
Playing to full crowds in Perth, Canberra, and Sydney, with Woodside management and politicians in attendance, the rock legends stopped their show mid-way through to slam Woodside’s Burrup Hub gas project – and its newest phase, Browse.
Wearing a ‘Woodside = Climate Wreckers” t-shirt, lead singer and Australia’s former environment minister Peter Garrett called Woodside’s gas expansion a “corporate, moral, and cultural crime” for its dangers to our climate and wildlife.
Garrett’s speech came at the right time. With the movement against its disastrous Scarborough gas project growing fast, Woodside has doubled down and released its plans for Browse: an even dirtier gas field under a coral reef off of Broome.
Browse is a terrible project as it threatens our beautiful coral reefs and marine life. We’re hard at work preparing the ground to make sure it never gets built. But in the meantime, you can seriously help by sharing the project to help build public pressure against Woodside.
We can stop this project – and we’re going to need everyone with us. Thank you for your support and helping us get ready: if you haven’t yet, make sure you sign up to get campaign updates.
