Comment on Custodians’ faith in sacred sites authority destroyed by Penangke.

I can just see Damien acknowledging the custodians at the official opening of this fiasco. Or will he keep his mouth shut and just cut a ribbon around his integrity.

So are you saying Elvis that we shouldn’t listen to our grannies, respect the position of those senior people with cultural knowledge? Forget what the grandfathers said and listen to the grandsons?

You need an education, Elvis. Apmereke-artweye and Kwertengele speak for country.


Custodians’ faith in sacred sites authority destroyed
Many people including our mayor, elected council and government members, the chief minister and others stand up at the start of all their events and acknowledge the Arrernte people and the custodians of this country. Do they mean it or is it just an empty gesture? Standing against this waste of money, this damage to a sacred site and our unique cultural heritage is a fine opportunity to really acknowledge the Arrernte people custodians and country. Where are you Damien etc?

The uproar should be about the lack of public housing, with so many people homeless or living in overcrowded conditions. A three bedroom house is not meant for 20+ people. It doesn’t help with the social problems.

Gas lobby silent on some fracking recommendations
I agree with the comment for “a prompt decision to give certainty to … all Territorians”. The people who live here need to know that our water supply and environment is safe. This should take priority over all other considerations.
