Summary
Describes the affect of colonisation on Indigenous Australians and specifically the issues caused by colonisation on the Aboriginal people of Aurukun and its mission; discusses the lack of care or understanding by the Queensland Government when handling requests for royalties from the mining industry; also describes the lack of consultation from the Government and Minister for Mining to the Aboriginal communities in the Weipa region, specifically Aurukun about the instigation of mining on the Aurukun Mission reserve land; when a Bill was passed to allow a one million dollar mining project on Aurukun land without the consent of the Aboriginal community who held protests against it, it was revealed that the community had been misled by the Queensland Government; also mentions the four representatives of the Aurukun community who attended the Aboriginal Land Rights conference in Cairns to protest against the mining project
