First Nations are Water Owners, Not Stakeholders

Water is life

Ghillar, Michael Anderson, asserts that First Nations are owners of water, not just stakeholders and promotes the callout for the 'Water is Life National Gathering' in Canberra on 12 and 13 February 2019. After the massive fish kills in Menindee Lake he demonstrates with a 2019 image from Google Earth that there is still plenty of water just southwest of Menindee Lake, in the Tandou cotton farm, which had a bumper crop this year and has just planted another. This is after selling its water licence for $78 million for an environmental water buyback in 2017 and not being charged for its final year of water allocation.

Leading First Nation groups say work for the dole scheme racially discriminatory and unhealthy

'Aboriginal Peak Organisations of the Northern Territory', and their members have received widespread concerns about the debilitating impacts that CDP is having on its participants, their families and communities.

Makarrata v Treaties

Makarrata v Treaty

The most strategic move for First Nations, at this time of an imploding Commonwealth government wracked by illegal parliamentarians who hold dual citizenship in breach of the Constitution, is to rise up and rebuild the governance, independence, cultural and economic development of one's own Nation and then for our First Nations to treaty with each other first, just as the Northern Basin Aboriginal Nations (NBAN) have done, demonstrating a way forward. The more First Nations treaty amongst themselves, the more the writing is on the wall for the colonial government ruling in right of the British Crown. Read more about Makarrata v Treaties
