A snap action was planned for the 29th November outside Woodside, who have recently decided to go ahead with the Scarborough Gas project and the Burrup Hub.
This action was not well attended. Some possible reasons for this are:
- The notice for it was short
- It was advertised to go for six hours with no specific focus times.
Another learning from this action was that a ranger reportedly said that there is a by-law that forbids people to sit on the footpath outside Woodside. This was told to one person sitting alone beneath a street tree and in no way obstructing the footpath. This by-law may be worth following up to confirm or debunk.
A total of 4 police officers attended but then reduced to two officers, who later left at 1pm when two rebels were still there.
Interactions with the police were close to non-existent but civil to amicable when they occurred.
