Adanis claims that W&J have certified Woongal are false Wangan & Jagalingou People

MEDIA RELEASE

Adanis claims that W&J have certified Woongal are false, disrespectful and underhanded, say Traditional Owners

Adanis announcement that Woongal Environmental Services has been given a contract to monitor environmental outcomes on Wangan and Jagalingou country has drawn condemnation from the W&J Council as false, and typical of the disrespectful and underhanded way in which Adani treats Traditional Owners.

W&J Traditional Owner and lead spokesperson Adrian Burragubba said, The claim that Woongul is a Wangan and Jagalingou certified business is false. No decision of the native title party has ever been made to certify this company. This announcement is in breach of the terms of Adanis own purported ILUA.

Other people have been given authority over our country and our environment, while many W&J Traditonal Owners and families have been deliberately excluded from any input into cultural heritage protection and environmental management.

They say they are building long-term sustainable business opportunities with Traditional Owners of the land, yet the company they have contracted has no Wangan and Jagalingou people involved. And there is no guarant...

Young Progressives Demanding Action - December 6, 2018 

On December 5, 2018, a coalition of students, faculty members and community supporters held a press conference outside Hawaii Hall, the Manoa Campus administrative building, to demand the school end all current and future contracts with the Thirty Meter Telescope corporation, and oppose new proposed rules governing who can and cannot access the sacred mountainrules aimed at restricting the ability of protectors to physically block development of the massive telescope, but which would also have lasting negative impacts on cultural practitioners ability to exercise their constitutionally protected rights to engage in customary practices on the summit.

The board members of the Young Progressives Demanding Action voted overwhelmingly in November of 2018 to support the student and faculty-led coalition of protectors in their efforts to hold UH accountable to its purported mission as a Hawaiian Place of Learning by divesting from this project. The board authorized the creation of a letter of support addressed to the Board of Regents and President Lassner, which will be included in the packet of documents the protectors deliver to the administration along with their demands. Below is the...
