Stand with us at Parliament House at
12 noon on 12 November 2014
to speak out against genocide and human rights violations in WA.
Oombulgurri, Swan Valley Nyungah Community and Kennedy Hill have been bulldozed.
What is next?
The Abott Government is withdrawing funding from 180 communities in Western Australia. The State Government is letting it happen, which means they will lose basic services and be shut down.
“Barnett’s plan will inflict more suffering and death on us the First People”.
By closing down Communities this State government is denying us as First People our right live on our Land the way we want to live, as a community of people, protecting our Families, our Culture and our Sacredness in the Land.
Bulldozing our Communities is forced assimilation, forced displacement and homelessness, forced sickness and death. The damage will be felt for generations to come.
Article 8 of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples says “Indigenous peoples and individuals have the right not to be subjected to forced assimilation or destruction of their culture”.
“Our rights as the First People are not being respected”.
Elders from: Oombulgurri;
Wongi Country; and
LAND. LAW. COMMUNITY LIVING.
Don’t wait for the justice that never comes, stand up and demand your rights.
Stand With Us
