Ghillar, Michael Anderson accuses the members of the WA Aboriginal Lands Trust of treasonous behaviour and actions against their own Peoples. He said this is evidenced by the fact that over the past years the Aboriginal Lands Trust has acted in concert with the interests of mining companies, the WA government and the Federal government to shut down Aboriginal communities under a policy of forced removal and clearing the land.

'Welcome to Country!' - Our Lands of Poverty and Devaluation

We now come in all sizes and colours, but you cannot take away the spirit of our forefathers and foremothers and our absolute connection to Mother Earth. The divide and rule by colour distinction will no longer work. We are who we are, always was and always will be.

How Native Title backfires – Big Time

How Native Title backfires – Big Time

In the last two years I have been inundated with complaints from First Nations Peoples throughout Australia about the operations of Native Title Services organisations, that are supposed to represent First Nations' interests, only to find the opposite is happening. The bulldozing of homes on 1 July 2018 in the marginalised Mallingbar community on Yawaru country at Kennedy Hill, Broome, Western Australia, to make way for a tourist lookout, is one of the latest examples.
