THE MARRA ABORIGINAL PEOPLE OBJECT TO MINING PROPOSALS IN THE LIMMEN NATIONAL PARK

THE MARRA ABORIGINAL PEOPLE OBJECT TO MINING PROPOSALS IN THE LIMMEN NATIONAL PARK

This unit has a focus on the Land Rights of the Marra Aboriginal people. After deliberations lasting almost two decades the Government of the Northern Territory Proclaimed the Limmen National Park and the adjacent Limmen Bight Marine Park. Interested parties were invited to have an input on what the Parks would allow and disallow. As traditional occupiers of the designated region the Marra people were keen to have an input. This interest heightened when the mining operation within the Park boundaries indicated a projected development in the form of a pipeline that would carry iron ore sludge from the mine across traditional Marra land; across the shallow waters of the Limmen Bight and onto Maria Island in the Gulf of Carpentaria. Maria Island was of particular interest to the Marra people. Consequently the Marra Aboriginal people prepared and forwarded Petition to the Northern Territory outlining their objections to the proposed pipeline. This unit is about what happened. It is about land rights of the Marra who, through generations, had been impacted by European presnce on the lands they regarded as their traditional lands. Students can gain some insight into the Marra respect for land and the need to protect its resources. The Petition is provided for screen use and is also contained in the attachments. Tke your students into the remote region of the Limmen National Park and the shallows seas of the Limmen Bight Marine Park. Have them consider the thinking behind the final Proclamation of the Parks which are shown in the map. There are other units on this area if you wish to broaden the study.

The World News Crossword - July 15th, 2018

The World News Crossword - July 15th, 2018

In this week’s puzzles… (1) A crossword based on events in last week’s news. A search & cloze puzzle detailing Part 2 of the amazing rescue of the 12 boys and their football coach from the flooded cave in northern Thailand, A crossword about NATO, and there are no clues, and A crossword all about Belgium (which achieved 3rd place in the FIFA World Cup). In last week’s news… All twelve boys from the Wild Boars football team and their coach who were trapped in a cave in northern Thailand were rescued. The US president said NATO member countries aren’t contributing enough to NATO (even though countries don’t contribute anything). Britain’s Foreign Minister resigned because he didn’t like the state of Brexit negotiations. Nestlé products are banned from zoos in Melbourne and a man has taken Monsanto to court alleging its weed killer caused his cancer. George Clooney fell off his motor bike while in Sardinia. Justin Bieber got engaged, maybe. An American tourist shut down Vienna airport because of a live artillery shell in her luggage. Scorpions invaded Brazilian cities, sort of. And after 66 years, an Indian man finally cut his finger nails. Angelique Kerber and Novak Đoković won the Women’s and Men’s Singles at Wimbledon. France won the FIFA World Cup, but the most loved and most successful football team during the World Cup was The Wild Boars of Thailand.
