BE HEARD – A MESSAGE FROM MISSY

A few days ago I blacked out, had a dream about all young people being properly enrolled to vote, and this happened.

VIEW MISSY’s VIDEO MESSAGE ‘BE HEARD.’

Share it with your friends if you believe we should all have a say in the future of our country, or just to have a giggle at my expense. I would. I do! Then, go to: www.aec.gov.au/enrol.

Even if you think it won’t make a difference, or you’ve lost hope in our leaders (like a lot of us have)… let me tell you that every vote you make puts a little bit more power in the hands of the good people in the Senate. In other words, it’s not just about who becomes Prime Minister, there are plenty of other people in parliament who are doing great things, they just need your vote to give them a louder voice. And if anything, it will stop just one party from having COMPLETE CONTROL over everything. That’s a scary idea.

So get involved!

Be heard!

Thanks for watching.

Luv Missy

Missy, John Butler Trio and Ballpark Music Play Concert for the Kimberley


Fellow musicians Missy, John Butler Trio and Ball Park Music, with special guest Sea Shepherd Director Bob Brown are standing together to protect the Kimberley.

The free open-air Concert for the Kimberley will be held at 1.30pm at the Fremantle Esplanade on February 24 and will feature a protest march through the town.

“This concert and rally is a call to arms for all West Australians to stand up and protect one of our finest national treasures, The Kimberley,” said John Butler. “To think of industrialising this truly special region in order to exploit a resource which is more profitable and practical to process somewhere else seems absolutely ludicrous.“

“I’m happy to help in any way. This is such an important issue, about a place very dear to my heart. Australians deserve to know that one our great wilderness’ is in serious danger of being destroyed forever”

Wilderness Society WA Coordinator Peter Robertson said the Society was delighted to be working with Missy and John to defend the Kimberley.

“The future of the Kimberley, especially the controversial proposed gas hub, is now a major issue across Australia and will feature strongly in both State and Federal elections,” said Mr Robertson.

The spectacular wilderness of the Kimberley’s James Prices Point is under threat by oil and gas giants Woodside, Shell, BHP Billiton, BP, Mitsubishi and Mitsui who plan to build Australia’s biggest industrial development, a needless destruction of something too precious to lose forever.

The Kimberley coast is classed in the top 4% of the least untouched marine environments in the world alongside the Arctic and Antarctic oceans. Its pristine waters are home to the world’s largest humpback whale nursery, and threatened dolphins, sea turtles and dugongs. The region is also a significant Indigenous heritage site, is home to the longest chain of dinosaur footprints on the planet, and has known populations of endangered bilby.
