Deceitful and fraudulent land dealings in WA and a breach of Trust: more WA Homelands closed down

Demolishing First Nations peoples houses in the Pilbara

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.

One of the slogan chants of the Invasion/Sovereignty Day March in Sydney was "No accident, it was murder!", referring to the continuing and spiralling number of deaths in custody. International lawyers are now referring to First Nations Peoples’ Deaths in Custody as being attributed to State-sanctioned death squads. ... The question of our continuing sovereignty governed by our ancient Law and customs is traced by our Songlines, dances and songs across this continent. ...... the Mabo judges committed treason and demonstrated their refusal to make an unbiased decision.
