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.

Conflict of interest raised in council’s rejection of gallery offer
If the gallery is built in the CBD it will bring an extra 53,000 people!
