Email the Queensland government: Don't extinguish W&J's native title!
Tell Premier Palaszczuk and Deputy Premier Trad to protect W&J’s native title.
For more than six years now, Wangan and Jagalingou (W&J) Traditional Owners have protected their country against Adani, who want to take it and turn it into a giant coal mine.
Two weeks ago, the Federal Court ruled against W&J. This opens the door for the Queensland government to extinguish W&J’s native title and give Adani freehold title to their land.
The Queensland government is now under immense pressure from Adani to extinguish W&J’s native title.
But they have a choice. The Federal Court’s ruling in no way forces them to extinguish native title.
Now, more than ever, it’s time to stand together as a powerful movement in support of the rights of First Nations people. Extinguishing W&J’s native to let a corporation build a mine would be morally bankrupt and we will not stand for it.
Together we must show the Queensland government how many people stand with W&J as they defend their land rights and demand justice for First Nations people.
Our community is powerful. When we stood together to push the Queensland government on Adani, Premier Palaszczuk ruled out public money from NAIF going to Adani.
We need to demonstrate this power again. Extinguishing native title is irreversible and unjust, impacting people for generations. We can’t let it happen.
