And on top of that we start seeing the real reason this is actually happening in Western Australia...
Traditional owners in Western Australia are set to launch a class action lawsuit against the State Government over the deregistration of sacred Indigenous sites.
In the past year several culturally significant sites, including waterways in the Mid West, have had their protection withdrawn by the Government on the basis they no longer fit the definition of a sacred site.
Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Peter Collier told Parliament late last year that for a place to be considered a sacred site, it must show it was devoted to religious use rather than just be a place of mythological story, song or belief.
The decision to deregister several sites was sparked by development applications from mining and exploration companies.
That last line should tell everyone in clear and concise tones exactly what is going on in Western Australia.
I feel like we are going back in time to pre-60's white Australia with it's desire to take that which does not belong to them.
