The main aim is to change the mindset, that it’s imminent, that its inevitable and it will happen. That mindset has to be challenged.
People say they can’t change anything but the only thing that has changed history has been people. Even that mindset of the individual has to be challenged the “Oh, what can I do?” Even that has to change. This gas development will only happen if people let it.
Redhand’s objective is to challenge this mindset, this ‘fait accompli’ thinking in the current environmental, political and economic climate.
- Hub will vandalise the Lurujarrri Heritage Walk Trail ---This is a most important heritage area and the songline travels through James Price Point. Aboriginal people have walked this trail for centuries and Elders have guided people from all over the world over the last few years.
- Compulsory Acquisition what does it mean?---This is the possible process the State Government will undertake.
And to Redhand’s digital fingers Francesco and Elena who are enjoying the wonders of the snow “Ciao how are you? From the cold snowy Dolomiti Mountain Italy”. look at http://www.xse.it/webcam.php Redhand’s special new year wishes to these two talented people, looking forward to seeing them after snowboarding in the Australian Alps later this year.
And for the deadliest assistance, with banners, by those who shall remain nameless.
If you’re thinking, what can you do? Visit one of the Indigenous Eco Tourism ventures on the Dampier Peninsula this year. Go fishing, go mudcrabbing, see the country for what it is clean and fresh and free, wonder at the birdlife, the fish, the whales trekking north to breed, and then come to Broome, buy pearls, look at our heritage and laze on one of the world’s best beaches.
Very special thanks to Eyesoncountry for doing exactly that, eyes on country. Redhand is off to country for new film and pics, bit of plant picking, birdwatching, snake avoiding, bit of picture taking, have a look around and collect some news. Over to Eyes on country and a peaceful and healthy 2009 to all. Redhand
Happy New Year 2009. Eyesoncountry would like to wish all those Handsoffcountry viewers and all who hold the earth sacred, blessings for the coming year.Would also like to acknowledge and give respect to the country we are all talking about as well as to the proper Law, Culture and Heritage Bosses of the Prices Point area.
Now to cut straight to the point.No doubt 2009 will bring a new string of events and media releases as fast as last years as the greed for gas outweighs our politicians abilities to see clearly, listen properly and actually feel the country they would like to bulldoze to oblivion.
To all our Federal and State politicians and the movers and shakers of big business the time has come for you to wipe the dust from your eyes and choose to operate in ways that supports this living planet that gives us life otherwise you will continue to get hounded by the Nation.
In 2009 we will not stop, we will not fail, we will not falter in our aim to expose and examine every move and utterance that comes forth from so called "high places" in regards to this issue.We will continue to bring you unedited points of view and interviews and any actions that take place and we have a constant source of eyes and ears on country and in the board rooms.So please take heed and use the new year to enlighten yourselves to what the majority of the Kimberley Community is saying.
We would also like to call on people from all around our nation and our planet to participate in whatever ways they can and we will need numbers up here in the Dry for actions.
However, direct non-violent action as well as the backing of our ancient allies means that we are quietly confident that wisdom will prevail and new options become available. Eyes on country
