A Positive Outcome At Last

as i have commented before on the governments underlying interests of gaining control over tribal lands that have been given back to the original inhabitants through native title...they continue to force them off their tribal lands by deeming them unfit to control their lives with illegal tactics

tribal elders continue to battle against these mining companies and the current company with intentions to establish a uranium mine in the centre of Kakadu is a french company Avera...can you imagine the devastation this mine would create to one of our natural resources is mind-boggling...just the amount of water that needs to be re-directed from vital water sources will upset the balance of the Kakadu eco-system 

but we can all thank the tribal elders who care about our environment and our future generations...as they have said no to the govt, the mining company and the LNP and have refused to enter into anymore talks or meetings

its a win BV...its a win....

cheers
