A MESSAGE FROM Wangan and Jagalingou Traditional Owners Council
Thank you. Last weekend we asked you to contact party leaders to put the handbrake on George Brandis’ cheap-ploy to overthrow our native title rights. Over 3,500 of you responded.
But, Labor has betrayed us. As we feared, they have broken faith with a long tradition of defending native title and abandoned our right to self-determination.
On Tuesday morning the ALP caucus met and backed the Senate committee’s recommendations.
The vote is next week. Unless we change Labor’s mind, the Government will get its way.
Labor makes out that they have done a good thing and fought the Government. But the truth is they are set to back the changes the Government wants.
But it’s not over until the vote. And right up until each politician casts their vote next week, we still have a chance.
Can you email Labor right now to urge them to stand up for our rights?
Right now, there’s an extra reason we can influence Labor. As we speak, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Vicky Tauli-Corpuz, is in Australia. If we can show Labor that the UN is watching, they’ll have to think long and hard before capitulating to the Government and abandoning our rights.
For too long the native title regime has been used to benefit everyone else but the Traditional Owners. The spirit of the original Mabo decision has long been betrayed - and the slow administrative death of our rights is nearly all but complete.
Even when we strike a blow for self-determination and the integrity of our laws and customs - like the Noongar appellants did, and like we have against Adani's mine of mass destruction - the mining councils and agricultural lobbies rally. They push the major parties into winding back the vestige of land rights that we have.
Please write to these Labor leaders to ask that they back away from their support for Brandis’ amendments and support proper native title law reform instead.
Contact the Labor Leader, Bill Shorten, and the Shadow Attorney General, Mark Dreyfus -
And Cc Senator Pat Dodson, and the UN Special Rapporteur (via us) -
Thankfully, the Greens gave a dissenting report. And Senator Nick Xenophon is surprised that Labor would back this bill. If Labor changes it’s mind there’s a chance we can stop this bad legislation and open the door to meaningful native title reform.
And so you don’t think we are beaten, just because Labor is, we have filed our litigation in the Federal Court against Adani’s fake ILUA.
We have more than enough evidence that Adani’s so called land use agreement is a sham.
We will fight on. Can you continue to support us? We need funds for our UN engagement, for our on-going fight in the courts, and for sustaining our public campaign. Please donate what you can.
With gratitude,
Adrian Burragubba & Murrawah Johnson
for the Wangan & Jagalingou Traditional Owners Council

Hmmmmm.....Will update or comment on this post as I know more!

Okay it seems (I only heard of this 30 mins ago second hand through Murwillumbah Matters Farcebook page) this is a development only under consulting stage - according to the original poster. Yet works underway that she also claims have no community consultation/council approvals. It is my understanding that a meeting will be held in Pat Smith park, Dulguian - 9 a.m. tomorrow morning, ALL WELCOME!!
