Comment on Whittling away at sacred sites protection by Dr Wrongo.

Aboriginal Areas Protection Authority prosecuted an organisation 10 years ago for damage to this site while trying to put in a bike path.
Now it seems AAPA think its OK to do further damage to this site against custodians’ wishes.
AAPA called Doris Stuart as one of their main witnesses in that court case, now they avoid talking to her. AAPA seem to have no ethics and are clearly not about protecting Aboriginal areas but rather about trying to find ways around custodians to allow damage to their sites.
Development at any cost.
And while we are on the subject of cost $800,000+ seems a ridiculous amount of taxpayers money to pay for a couple of hundred yards of bike path, when there is a perfectly good bike path running parrallel a hundred yards away. How much of that cash will get into the hands of the gammon custodians?

Mr Scambury understands that the proposed removal of this tree is acceptable to custodians but Mr Scambury and AAPA are not consulting with senior custodians.
And what is the Arrernte council thinking.
They were fined for damaging this site now it seems its open slather.

“Policies that reinforce traditional Australian values at the time of the foundation of the country.” Really, that sounds very backward and quite dangerous for many in our community. Surely they can’t be serious.

Steve: Anyone who has been here for a while can see the huge change in the landscape.
Areas with little or no buffle are slowly being dominated by this weed at a detriment to the biodiversity an natural beauty of these places.
It crowds out other species and grows much thicker than native grasses and leaves a huge fuel load that burns hotter.
Sure we need to take precautions to stop these wildfires but in national parks and areas that are set aside to protect the natural environment buffle needs to be severely controlled if not eradicated.

If we care at all for our environment, biodiversity and parks we would be looking for some way to stop the spread of buffle grass and eradicate it if possible.
