Indigenous Peoples of Australia: Environment
Centre for Indigenous Natural and
Cultural Resource Management - located at Northern
Territory University in Darwin, the Centre "aims to be a national and international focal
point for research which meets the needs of indigenous Australians and which facilitates
career opportunities for indigenous researchers. CINCRM supports indigenous students and
scholars to undertake research in natural and cultural resource management, community
development and sustainable development issues affecting indigenous Australians"
Irati Wanti - "We are the Aboriginal women Yankunytjatjara, Antikarinya and Kokatha. We know the country. The poison the Government is talking about will poison the land. We say "NO radioactive dump in our ngura - in our country." It's strictly poison we don't want it."
Jabiluka Action Group - "We all have
an opportunity to act now. Kakadu National Park defines Australia's environmental identity.
Australia cannot wait until this threat strikes at the very heart of our environmental future.
This development will recklessly contaminate a priceless natural treasure. Mining will not
solve the economic problems of Australia, short-term private company profits cannot be
measured against values which guarantee our survival. This is not a matter of convenience we
have to halt the exploitation of Australia's greatest natural resource. We seek the commitment
of all Australian's to protect the future of our lands and in so doing guarantee the heritage
of future generations. We ask you to support us and make your opinions known to the Federal
government about the proposed Jabiluka mine. Help us maintain our heritage and preserve Kakadu
National Park for the enjoyment of all Australian's"
