Some related video also...The pristine Kimberley region in Western Australia is one of the nation's natural wonders but that could change if a multi-million dollar gas project gets the green light.
"Hypothetically they do allow the development up there. There is going to be a campaign, not in Australia, there's going to be a worldwide campaign," he said.
"It's going to be bigger than the Franklin River and if they think we're going to take this lying down, there's no way that we will."

Quite a thought provoking article as far as I'm concerned...
Anyone care to comment?
