Five traditional owners traveled from Maningrida to Sydney and held a public event in Martin Place outside the offices of Paltar Petroleum at midday on Friday 19 July. They raised awareness and garner support on their mission to stop Paltar Petroleum from drilling in their sea country, just off the coast of the Northern Territory.
