All proceeds will go to the Goolarabooloo Legal Fighting Fund, financing the significant legal and travel costs for their campaign against the WA Government’s proposal to compulsorarily acquire 3600 hectares of their country at James Price Point, 50 kms north up the coast from Broome, in the Kimberley.
‘Apart from the obvious environmental impact of this proposed industrialisation, which has been well documented, the significant issue of the preservation of our aboriginal cultural and spiritual heritage, has not been given due consideration.
The Law and Song Cycles of Walmadan are not ancient history, but present-day fact.This Law has been kept alive through my grandfather Paddy Roe and now through me. If this threatened development goes ahead, our country is gone forever. Our country holds our Heritage, including our burial sites, and most importantly the Song Cycle that runs through this country from the north of the Dampier Peninsula, south to Bidyadanga, the area below Roebuck Bay. Your voice can draw attention to this great plight and help protect our ancient and sacred Song Cycles – Bugarigaara (Dreamtime). Thank you.’ Joseph Roe Senior Law Boss Goolarabooloo JabirrJabirr People.
