Letter to the QLD Premier there should be no extinguishment of Native Title Wangan & Jagalingou People

 

THERE SHOULD BE NO EXTINGUISHMENT OF NATIVE TITLE WITHOUT OUR CONSENT

 

On 22 December 2017 the Wangan and Jagalingou Traditional Owners Family Council wrote to

The QLD Premier,

The Deputy Premier, Treasurer and Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships, and

The Minister for Natural Resources, Mines and Energy

 

The W&J Council received its most recent mandate at a meeting of the W&J claim group on 2 December 2017. The letter informed the Government that the W&J claim group opposes the Adani Mining Pty Ltd project because of the damage that it will cause to the culture, and the lands and waters, of the Wangan and Jagalingou People.

W&J council also oppose the registered Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) with Adani Mining Pty Ltd purported to be authorised by the Wangan and Jagalingou People in controversial circumstances (the Adani ILUA).

W&J council uphold the decisions of the claim group who, on four separate occasions (the last being at the authorisation meeting of 2 December 2017), have rejected the Adani ILUA.

We noted the following

1. There is no free prior informed consent of the Wangan and Jagalingou People to the Adani project or the Adani ILUA.

2. The Adani ILUA is not acceptable compensation for the destruction of our country and the loss and suffering that would occur. Nor does it provide an equitable consideration regarding jobs and benefits.

3. The circumstances in which the Government, in support of an ILUA, became directly involved in internal Wangan and Jagalingou discussion is of very serious concern to us.

4. The Adani ILUA contains a provision which allows for the immediate surrender and extinguishment of our native title.

Close the Gap Reset Urgently Required ANTaR

In his 2005 landmark Social Justice Report, Social Justice Commissioner Tom Calma called for a generational campaign to address the appalling gap in health between First Peoples and other Australians, that sees a baby born to an Aboriginal mother twice as likely to die before the age of four, and elders lives cut short by more than 10 years compared to non-Indigenous Australians.

Were just two years off the halfway mark of the nationally agreed target of closing the health equality gap by 2030, yet the Federal Government is taking us backwards. Only three of seven targets is considered on track, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child mortality is slipping backwards.

Thats why we were in Canberra last week joining our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander partners in calling for a reset of the close the gap approach.

We told the PM that he had effectively abandoned the closing the gap strategy with funding cuts of $530m in 2014, discontinued National Partnership Agreements, and unfunded plans. As the Prime Minister sits down at COAG, we have made our calls loud and clear that government mu...
