Plug the pipe, 2007

Susan GORDON-BROWN, born 1969.

 

Angry farmers protest against the Victorian state government’s proposal to pump billions of litres of water each year from the Goulburn River in northern Victoria to metropolitan Melbourne. Locals argue there isn’t enough water to share, and are concerned the pipeline may be built through national parks and state forests without an environmental impact assessment.

 

Near Shepparton, Victoria.
