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.

So a vote for Snowdon is a vote for fracking, a vote to endanger our water supply and a vote for global warming.
A vote for the CLP is the same thing but they will never change. Labor might if they lose votes and don’t pick up the preferences.
They will definitely be chasing those votes / preferences next time.
Tell Wazza he won’t get my vote or preferences unless he ànd his party change their line on fracking.
