Local musician and artist best known as The Kiffness has released a track in protest against Shell’s plan to explore for oil in the sensitive marine environment, along the Wild Coast of eastern South Africa.
This includes firing loud shockwave emissions down through 1.8 miles of water and almost 35 miles into the seabed to create a seismic survey of the area.
The powerful song is inspired by John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’, and is titled ‘Reimagine’. Here he outlines the negative impact and damage that may be caused.
“Imagine no seismic blasting.
“It’s easy if you try.
“No Shell on the Wild Coast.
“And no government ties.
“Imagine being a dolphin.
“It isn’t hard to do.
“Then Shell start blasting for oil.
“And it ends up killing you.”
