Silence Speaks

Images from a silent protest held in Perth's Forrest Square, against the destruction of the Beeliar Wetlands for the Roe 8 Highway extension.

The protest movement was successful in convincing the then opposition party to commit to cancelling the project if they won the upcoming election. They did win and the project was cancelled, saving the wetlands from further destruction.
