CARAVAN TRIP 2007 Meekatharra is a town in the Mid West region of Western Australia. Meekatharra is an Australian Aboriginal word meaning 'place of little water'. At the 2001 census, Meekatharra had a population of 945, with 36.2% being Indigenous Australians.[1] Meekatharra is a major supply centre for the pastoral and mining area in the Murchison region of Western Australian. It was an important location in the Western Australian Government Railways system - being the northernmost location in the Northern Railway railway network, apart from the isolated Marble Bar Railway branch out of Port Hedland. For a while a further branch line continued eastwards to Wiluna The line was closed from Mullewa and pulled up in the 1970s. It is located 764 km north east of Perth and may be reached by the Great Northern Highway. It is a centre for sheep and cattle transshipment, initially by rail but now by road trains. A huge 2181 metre runway, now known as Meekatharra Airport, was built by the Americans during World War II. It serves as an important ETOPS diversion airport for inbound transcontinental flights to Australia. It is also a regional home to the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the School of the Air.

In memory of Mathew Sampi
Clive Palmer, Mineralogy and the Kuruma Marthudunera people of the Pilbara By Hedley Thomas and Paige Taylor, from The Australian, May 1, 2014, page 1 (abbreviated) Mathew Sampi, said yesterday he had no confidence in Mr Palmer as the tycoon had broken past pledges to spend money on indigenous health. “We don’t believe anything he says now,’’ said Mr Sampi, who represents the Kuruma Marthudunera people and grew up fishing and hunting in the Cape Preston area in the Pilbara, near an iron ore project built by Chinese company CITIC Pacific. “He can suck a lot of Aboriginal people in and some of them really don’t know what they have been talked into. He seemed real good in the beginning, saying he was going to help the Aboriginal people in the area. They destroyed a lot of things, they disturbed special places where there used to be ancient tools.” Findings by magistrates include that Mr Palmer’s company and staff exhibited “a sense of absolute entitlement in relation to mining endeavours” and “adopted an unduly confrontational approach” with indigenous owners. Mr Sampi said yesterday that Mr Palmer told Aboriginal leaders he would establish health services in townships outside the big regional centre of Karratha, particularly in Roebourne where most of the town’s 1000 residents are indigenous. “He’s promised big, lots of money down here for medical reasons and medical stuff, and he’s given nobody nothing.,” he said. “I (first) met Palmer when I was a kid on property he is now leasing. We’ve had a lot of trouble with him. We got suspicious when he stopped talking about it anymore. And then he went back to his place over there in Queensland ...” Mr Sampi, in Perth with his family yesterday for chemotherapy, said it was important to stand up for his land and he believed there were lessons for other Aborigines in his experience. According to one of the findings in 2012, Mineralogy’s approach and past conduct “gives rise to serious and genuine concerns about heritage protection” or legal compliance. In an earlier Native Title Tribunal case, Mineralogy was found to have given a “take it or leave it” ultimatum to indigenous owners of the land the company wanted to mine. Tribunal deputy president John Sosso found that Mineralogy had not acted prudently, reasonably or responsibly in its dealings with Aborigines. In a case involving the Kuruma Marthudundera group, elders Neil Ricky Finlay and Mr Sampi told the court of bad experiences with the company in the Pilbara region, which includes sacred burial grounds near the Cane River and the town of Karratha. The Mining Court’s magistrate, Elaine Campione, described the two elders as “respected, senior and knowledgeable men” and she accepted their evidence. Ms Campione said none of the evidence presented by Mr Finlay and Mr Sampi “was contested by (Mineralogy)”. She said she shared the view of Mr Sampi and Mr Finlay that Mineralogy had a “particularly poor approach to cultural and heritage matters, including a complete lack of consultation”. Mathew Sampi was filmed at Cane River on Peedamulla Station out from Onslow WA in January 2004. A true land rights fighter. RIP.

Friends of the Earth campaigners and aboriginal rights campaigners led the protest outside the meeting in London on Thursday. The campaigners were there to raise concerns about plans for a gigantic uranium mine on Aboriginal land at Jabiluka in the Kakadu National Park, Australia. Jabiluka is in the Alligator rivers region of the Northern Territory, about 30 km east of Darwin. The mine site is surrounded by the Kakadu National Park, which is world heritage listed and is on land has been traditionally owned by the Mirrar Aboriginal people. The Aboriginal Mirrar people regard Jabiluka as their ancestral home and a sacred site. The Mirrar have led opposition to the development of Jabiluka, which has resulted in major protests all over Australia and over 500 arrests They point to the damage done by the Ranger mine, which they say has left 20 million tonnes of tailings (a radioactive mining by product) in spoil heaps around its operations. Rio Tinto inherited the Jabiluka development following their takeover of Australian mining company North Limited last year. Likely buyers would include French nuclear utility Cogema.

WA Bypasses Native Title in a Cosy deal with Buru-Mitsubishi (3 min 9 sec) Original story by Peter Deane This is a story that slipped under the radar, but got coverage on Friday on the ABC's 7:30 WA programme (21 June 2013), and we present an extract from the show here. The story broke in November last year as the new 25+25 land tenure agreements slipped through the WA parliament. The Canning Basin is reported to have unconventional gas reserves of 229,000,000,000 cubic feet. The size of this reserve is more than one and a half times WA's currently identified offshore reserves. The permits apply to Buru's prospecting areas in Valhalla, Yullero and Ungani. In order to facilitate the Buru-Mitsubishi joint venture (JV), the WA government has given the JV a real leg-up by creating a new land tenure system with a 25 year licence and option for another 25 year renewal. The unusual thing about this system is that it has by-passed Native Title rights completely. Normally a fundamental basis for Native Title land tenure is that the original inhabitants are consulted all the way along the development. The WA move eliminates the need to consult with traditional owners at all, at great convenience for the mining companies. This is the first time the domestic gas reservation policy has been used for an onshore project, which will include building a $500m 600-kilometre pipeline from the Kimberley to the Pilbara. WA Premier Colin Barnett said that the state needed to ensure its natural gas resources were prioritised for use in the state. The new 25+25 leases allow the mining company and the government to deal directly with each other, with no input from any other interested parties, such as the residents or those concerned about Native Title. This comes after the incident in October 2012 when Buru Energy was forced to stop work at its Ungani oil project after traditional owners said Buru had destroyed an Aboriginal archaeological site about 100 kilometres east of Broome. Mike Bergmann of KRED Enterprises represents the group making the challenge to the legislation in the WA courts. His feeling is that the WA government has gone a bridge too far, and by failing to allow for the Mabo precedent, the law is unconstitutional. He explains the situation in this video References: http://finance.ninemsn.com.au/newsbusiness/aap/8560643/buru-mitsubishi-strike-kimberley-gas-deal http://www.rigzone.com/news/article.asp?a_id=121907 http://www.theaustralian.com.au/business/mining-energy/buru-on-a-roll-with-pipeline-deal/story-e6frg9df-1226512575712
