Comment on Hetti Perkins on the legacy of ‘Australia’s artistic heritage’ by Just Saying.

“With the right information and expert advice, the Aboriginal community should grasp the opportunities and move forward with them.”
Interesting statement! I would have thought that those local Arrernte people who are strongly connected to their culture, are the ‘experts’ and perhaps whoever is driving this needs to get the right information and expert advice from these people and accept their viewpoint. Not the other way round.
It’s a government plan I believe and they have a great track record in listening to Expert advice, especially from Arrernte people, not!
Government also don’t mind trying to force Arrernte people to grasp opportunities that they are not interested in and that often have no benefit for them.

They have no business case, they have no money no idea and not a lot of support.


Voter banned from Parliamentarian’s office
What’s the point of voting for a Labor Party member if they don’t get to represent my interests on an important issue? Who were the eight or so who voted for fracking? How come they get to decide? Why didn’t my member get to represent me, and which way would you have voted, Chansey?

By 2030 a world class gas hub will most probably be one that is working for the environment and humanity not against it.

Yep.


Anonymous donation doesn’t fix conflict of interest for council
Culturally Jacinta has no authority to do a welcome to Mparntwe. It needs to be an Mparntwe person. It is a tokenistic gesture. How many would leave if told they weren’t welcome?
