Picnic For Renewables

We will meet at 5:45 pm at the Aboriginal Art Gallery, Fraser Avenue, Kings Park

At 6pm, Monday 11 April, Malcolm Turnbull, our Prime Minister, is being wined and dined by the fossil fuel industry at the very exclusive Fraser’s Restaurant. Across the road, we will host a community dinner to show support for renewable energy. A place will be reserved at our table for Mr Turnbull. Will he choose to dine with the community or will he dine with the industry?

Join our community dinner! Bring signs, banners, and props, such as solar panels and wind turbines, that support a clean energy future! Dress to impress.

The official dinner opens the 18th International Conference on Liquefied Natural Gas. Billed as “the world’s largest LNG event,” this conference will bring over 250 major natural gas company representatives, including the CEOs of ConocoPhillips, Chevron, Shell, Bechtel Group, Petronas, Origin, Woodside. As the largest fossil fuel industry meeting in Western Australia, it is a historic opportunity to voice the public’s desire for alternatives to the fossil fuel industry that destroys our communities, environment and political system. 

LNG is a system for exporting natural gas from Australia. The industry aims to increase LNG exports four fold in three years, relying primarily on onshore, fracked wells, which have been proven to pollute water and air, affect human health, damage landscapes, and industrialise rural communities. Current law prohibits landowners from vetoing oil and gas companies from drilling on private lands. 

This LNG conference is designed to showcase WA’s readiness to expand fracking in the Perth Basin, the Mid West, and the Kimberleys. The government needs to know that Western Australians want clean, safe energy for a 21st century society, and do not support the destruction of pristine WA environments and water so that our natural resources can be exported for the profit of fossil fuel industries.
