Home is Heritage
In response to Colin Barnett’s November 2014 and May 2016 comments that he would like to see fewer remote Aboriginal communities, I am running the Home is Heritage campaign to prevent community closures, and have tabled a draft of my Prevention of Forced Closures of Remote Aboriginal Communities Bill 2016.
Home is Heritage petitions Mr Barnett to abide by the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and the bill seeks to prevent closures and enable residents to contest closures which take place without their permission. I am seeking feedback on the bill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
