Saddle up for a big day out in Katherine: the horse and rider march for a frack free Territory! Join rancher John Fenton, plus other exciting guests for this powerful event to protect the places we love from risky shale gas fracking.
Muster from 10am at Ryan Park Katherine on Saturday morning 16 April, for a 10:30 march start down the main street to the Lindsay St Complex (Katherine Tick Market site).
John Fenton is a Wyoming rancher whose community now relies on water trucked in following gas contamination of local drinking supplies. Helen Bender tragically lost her father, Chinchilla farmer George Bender last year after a long-running battle with unconventional gas encroachment on the family farm. Hear their stories and get inspiration to protect the Territory from a similar fate.
Right now, more than 90% of the Northern Territory is under application for onshore gasfields, despite the known risks to community health and water supplies from the fracking industry.
On Saturday morning 16 April 2016, bring along family, friends and horses if you can, to stand with John Fenton and people from the land everywhere, calling for a frack free future for the Northern Territory.
