Chemicals in the air from industry on the Burrup cause lots of different health problems, including asthma, stroke, cancer and heart attacks. These chemicals are dangerous for people living and working near industry.

The government have air quality monitoring in a lot of places in WA, but not in the Pilbara.

Woodside have done their own air quality monitoring on the Burrup, but they won't release their information.

We should be able to know how clean our air is. We want to breathe clean air and have a safe environment for everyone. And we don't want any more industry on the Burrup creating more emissions.
