Lake Jasper protest
Environmental activists, Aboriginal custodians, parliamentary representatives and more will gather at Yoondadadup Lake in the State’s South West on December 8.
They will protest proposed mineral sand mining in the area, which they say could damage WA’s biggest freshwater lake and the many animal species living there.
It is also an important indigenous cultural site with archaeological significance and is a popular recreational tourist spot.
The D’Entrecasteaux Coalition has organised the protest, and organisation spokesman Andy Russell said sand mines in other areas similar to the lake had caused major problems.
“We know that mineral sand mines in similar environments such as Beenup and Jangardup have caused major environmental and public health issues,” he said.
Mr Russell said the community was more than welcome to head down to the lake and protest or email savelake[email protected] for more information.
