Please help our allies in Australia in their struggle against Chevron.
Chevron is part of a consortium, including BP, Shell, BHP Billiton and Woodside Petroleum that has joined forces to push a new natural gas refining facility along the wild and sacred Kimberley coast in Northwestern Australia.
Last year, two leading Australian activists from the Kimberley joined Global Exchange in Houston to protest at Chevron’s Annual Shareholder Meeting and to contribute to our True Cost of Chevron: An Alternative Annual Report. They told us how Chevron is destroying their fragile ecosystems and splitting their communities with false economic promises. Now they’ve asked us to help apply international pressure by calling on the Australian government to reject this project.
If allowed to move forward, the project will pump up to 39 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year into the air (a 50% increase in Western Australia’s current total emissions) and release up to 66,000 tons per year of other noxious and toxic gas emissions, such as benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylenes.
Join Global Exchange in solidarity with The Wilderness Society of Western Australia, Environs Kimberley, Save the Kimberley, Turtle Island Restoration Network, and dozens of other groups and send a message to the Australian government demanding that it reject Chevron and the Kimberley gas hub.
