Event: Sat 20 April 2013: Locations all over Australia!
Junk for Justice - The Wilderness Society Kimberley Campaign
"Promote your garage sale to thousands of people
via an interactive map on the Junk for Justice
Facebook page."
"You can also find other garage sales in your area to visit.
In return, we ask that you donate a fair portion of your
day's profit to the Wilderness Society to help us cover
the costs of our court case against the West Australian
Environmental Protection Authority. Together, we can
stop bulldozers destroying beautiful James Price
Point on the Kimberley coast."
"The Wilderness Society's historic court case is primarily
against the Western Australian Environment Minister and
state's Environmental Protection Authority (the case is
about the assessment of the precinct, rather than
Woodside's project in particular). We’ll be seeking
immediate legal advice about the implications of today’s
announcement [12 April 2013], but at this stage we believe
it’s still important to pursue our case in the Supreme Court."

Aboriginal Disempowerment in the Northern Territory
Auntie Betty Pike, Elder Aboriginal Catholic Ministry
Michele Harris, 'concerned Australians'
"This new book is an important historical record
that focuses on the Senate Committee Inquiry
into the Stronger Futures legislation. It shows
how the Government decision-making process
chose to ignore the views and ideas expressed
by many Aboriginal people of the Northern Territory
communities in much the same way as has
happened since colonisation."
