Comment on Will NT fill nature tourism void when reef dies? by Dr Wrongo.

If Mr Giles had any engagement with or care about the native title holders / traditional owners or any connection to traditional culture he would know that the desecration of a sacred site is completely not acceptable.
I think many people who come to Central Australia are interested in learning about indigenous culture and most would probably not want to be party to helping destroy our unique cultural heritage, so forget about this ridiculous thought bubble, a restaurant or chairlift ride up Mt Gillen.
It is not acceptable to TOs and I believe this has been stated often in the past.
However, if the government and tourism industry was able to really respect Arrernte culture and values then we could begin to start creating truly unique and exciting “products” that would be highly sought after.

Will NT fill nature tourism void when reef dies?
Ms Brown seems to understand that polluting the oceans and waterways is not a good idea and can lead to unforeseen problems.
It’s not a great leap to understand that polluting the atmosphere is also not a good idea and can lead to unforeseen problems.
Like global warming for example. Whether climate change is true or not surely we must all understand that it’s time to stop polluting our planet. The more mess we make the bigger the problem.

Territory Alliance to ‘lock the gate’ on fracking
CLP and ALP both are gung ho into fracking. I suggest letting your local member know they are at the bottom of your preferences until they change their mind on that.
Especially the Labor members whose Territory conference voted against fracking but a few at the top decided to overrule them.
If you don’t trust Mills mob put him third last, above CLP and ALP. Vote for a trustworthy independent if you can.


CLP would build gallery at Desert Park, not Anzac precinct
And judging by this the CLP will fail to listen or take into consideration the views of the senior custodians for this place.
Tourism wants engagement with indigenous people. Tourists want indigenous experiences but it will never happen when there is no respect for Indigenous people or culture.
That lack of respect starts in the Halls of power and echos down onto the streets.

Native title organisation backs Anzac precinct for gallery
Judging by past performance from both parties (NT Government and Lhere Artepe) this agreement won’t stand up to scrutiny.
