Woodside = polluter, destroyer of heritage

According to the normally innocuous RACV mag, in the Pilbara on the Burrup Penninsula there is a fenced off area numbered rocks a kept with petroglyphs on them, removed in the 60s by Woodside, and now they are doing it again - removing another 165 sites. In the 60s you could say we knew no better, now the destruction of art on the Burrup Peninsula is inexcusable. Why is there no outcry?

Woodside Petroleum is considered by some to be Australia's worst polluter  - its acidic emissions are a threat to the art the company hasn't removed to make way for development.
