Mr Roe, whose Goolarabooloo community are claimants to the area around James Price Point, said Mr Bergman from Kimberley Land Council, was wrong to claim that a majority of the Jabir Jabir group supported the development. He vowed to stop the plant, blaming Mr Bergman for what he claims is bitter feuding over the issue within Kimberley communities. "My own family members are drawing lines between me and the gas plant and I blame the man who is supposed to be representing me,"
"This is not a bluff. I'm talking about my country, my culture, my heritage, my spirituality. "Generations before my grandfather had the body of knowledge to carry on the culture. "I was told to look after it in the best way I can and I will never let that (gas plant) happen."
