Murder on the Reef

Feature documentary trailer

An objective documentary about the Great Barrier Reef and current port expansion projects, which are adding to the decline of the Reef’s health.

Keep Urannah Pristine. No Dam, Connection to Country.

Hear the insights of Ken Peters Dodd,  a sovereign Birriah man whose  ancestors were  forced from their land west of Bowen in Queensland.  

Now he has returned with his family to live on Birri country, perform ceremony  and defend it from the proposed Urannah dam,  from Adani’s plans and from climate change.  

Giyou Peters Dodd gives a clear call for us all to clean up the planet. Senator  Larissa Waters asks for a stronger indigenous voice and to clean up politics.

We need your help

to protect our river, our environment and our culture

"We are the River People our river is sacred it is our life it gives us the connection to our land and the beginning of creation.

It is our duty to protect our BIRI (river) against the rapid demand of water supplies to the Mining Industry in the Bowen Basin. Urannah Creek and Broken River are the last wild rivers in this country and the biodiversity and the environment is untouched.” Descendant Wiri and Birri people.

We will be launching our campaign soon to build the people power to stop this dam.
