Not sure how to contact you otherwise. Just writing to thank you very much for your support in the Yindjibarndi fight with FMG. We are a small group fighting for our culture and the rights of our grandchildren. It is an uphill battle and we are currently waiting for the fightback. It will be big. The resources on the other side are huge.
Anything that anyone can do such as contact politicians or get the word out it a great help. These guys have connections everywhere so you will not see it in the mainstream media. Jan Mayman's article in the Age is about as far as it will get although we were surprised to see an edited version of it on the front page of the West Australian yesterday. Probably because it is getting around over here.
Once again thank you very much for your help and support.
Supporter of the Yindjibarndi Aboriginal Corporation.
Thanks for your message Noelene. I was appalled to hear what is happening to the Yindjibarndi. I have emailed Martin Ferguson as he is the Minister for Mining and also my local member. I’m also seeking to raise awareness of this issue amongst friends and family.
I’ve often felt unsure about a path forward for reconciliation between myself and indigenous Australians. I haven’t had many relationships or opportunities to connect but I feel that this a helpful contribution I can make to show my concern for and solidarity with the first people and traditional owners of our beautiful country.
