The story so far

For the last 20 years, the Alcoa refinery in Wagerup has been polluting the environment with toxic emissions that have resulting in serious health issues for many residents. Despite our pleas for help we have been abandoned by the Government and other regulatory bodies who are empowered to prevent exactly this type of bullying.

It may be 20 years on but we’re more determined than ever to see justice done. We’ll never give up. We were here first and have every right to live in a safe place. This is a basic human rights issue. Our safety is under constant threat. Alcoa and our State Government knowingly and deliberately allow their citizens to be poisoned. They’ve made their position abundantly clear. They claim the overall economic benefit to many outweighs the suffering of a few.

We disagree.

"This area is being destroyed by an industry which - it doesn't accept responsibility for its actions."

"This is not about shutting Alcoa down. I want to make that clear. It is about making them accountable."

Erin Brockovich

Environmental Campaigner
"If Alcoa has a situation and those residents are in front of them and they're in any danger, absolutely, I would say and I agree with the community, move them. If you need to continue on, don't harm them, don't trespass on them that way. Frankly, it's disrespectful at a very simple level. They're human beings too. Move them."
