John Fenton Tour NT Katherine

On April 15 and 16 landholders and communities from across the Territory will gather in Katherine for a powerful event to protect the places we love from risky shale gas fracking.

Between 10am and 4pm Friday 15 April, you are welcome to participate in workshops and information sessions about working together to protect water and communities from fracking gasfields. 

Join John Fenton, a Wyoming rancher whose community now relies on water trucked in following gas contamination of local drinking supplies, and Helen Bender, who tragically lost her father, Chinchilla farmer George Bender last year after a long-running battle with unconventional gas encroachment on the family farm.

Right now, more than 90% of the Northern Territory is under application for fracking, despite the known risks to community health and water supplies. 
Join the Gala Dinner with John Fenton at the Katherine Country Club on Friday night 15 April.
Most importantly, join in the biggest march Katherine has ever seen on Saturday morning 16 April from Ryan Park. Stand with John Fenton and people from the land everywhere, calling for a frack free future for the Northern Territory.
