Concert For The Kimberley

Where: Fremantle Esplanade, Fremantle WA
When: Sunday February 24th 1.30pm – 6.30pm
How much: FREE (donations welcome for the Protect the Kimberley campaign)

MC’d by Peter Rowsthorn (ABC TV/Radio) the Concert for the Kimberley will feature Australian music icons the John Butler Trio, Missy Higgins (acoustic) and Ball Park Music, and special guest Sea Shepherd Director Bob Brown standing together to protect the Kimberley.
“Like Tasmania’s Robin Gray and the Franklin River, Colin Barnett can neither see the heritage value of the Kimberley Coast nor hear the public anger rising. He has a win win option for the gas factory and he should take it”, said Bob Brown.
“It’s time for West Australians to say that some places are too precious to plunder. Protect the Kimberley for all to enjoy,” said John Butler.
The free open-air Concert for the Kimberley will be held at 1.30pm at the Fremantle Esplanade on February 24 and will feature a protest march through the town.
