There was a historic gathering of Indigenous groups in the remote town of Elliott recently. They had come from communities across the Territory to stand in solidarity and protect the Territory's sacred waterways from fracking.
"Our water, Our land, No Fracking" was chanted by Indigenous leaders and community members as they marched down the main street of Elliott. They sent a strong message to the NT Government that they want a permanent Territory-wide fracking ban.
Community leaders pledged to stand together against proposed invasive fracked gas fields that could compromise water supplies for tens of thousands of Territorians.
Fracking "puts the health of our land, water, communities and culture at risk", said Eleanor Dixon, a Mudburra Garawa custodian and organiser of the event.
You can help protect the Territory from shale gas fracking!
