It’s time. We had the Fight for the Bight and won. PEP 11 is a mess that we will overcome. But the bigger picture is moving beyond new oil and gas in Australian waters for good, recognising the boundless oceanic opportunities for economic growth and community resilience for the next generation of stoked out groms.
As surfers, we need to recognise that the threats posed by new oil and gas offshore can’t be a ‘Not In My Backyard’ issue. We need to recognise that the whole ocean is our shared backyard and we need to advocate for all of it.
We’re calling for a line in the sand on new oil and gas in the next two terms of the Federal Parliament and we’re asking our community to join us in the line up and take-off on the final party wave of action.
