ABC TV program – Rush to Riches – well worth a look

“Rush to Riches”
ABC TV Four Corners
21 June 2010

reporter – Deb Whitmont

A fascinating mix of factors (land ownership, who can speak for country) regarding a now bitter dispute between First Peoples in Western Australia (the Kimberley region) regarding the location of a gas processing plant.

(Provides very interesting parallels with the way the Australian government is handling the location of a radioactive waste storage facility at Muckaty Station in the Northern Territory – including the role of Land Councils – this comparison not made in the 4 Corners program.)
