Our Beautiful Country is Being Destroyed in Front of Us People, Black and White – 2023
Acrylic on Canvas – 60 x 60
Standing on the hills under our Aboriginal flags are the old people, long gone, but still here watching as the fracking trucks come into our Country with their drilling rigs and bulldozers. The farckers with government permission push over trees, cut through Dreaming Tracks and drill deep into our country to blast, pump down toxic chemicals and take the gas resting in the Earth. Frackers and the government, who give the OK and money to start destroying our Country don’t care about our beautiful land with its rich waters full of life and food. They just want to make money while they clear the land and poison our water and live far away in the big cities. It’s not just us Aboriginal people fighting to protect the land and water, but whitefellas too, the station owners are standing with us to try and push back the frackers to protect the water and the land. Like us they know you can’t eat money.
