Did you know? Fortescue Metals group owned by Twiggy Forrest pushed down its train tracks over the top of them Pilbara mob`s rock art. While the TO`s were negotiating in good faith for the tracks to go around this irreplaceable aboriginal heritage, Twiggy the Conquistador made sure he steamrolled right over the top for the sake of efficiency and pragmatism. Onya Twigs the newly self appointed saviour of the blacks.
Twigs story on the generation one website sounds so convincing.I know too many of my bubbly`s in Hedland that think they got ripped off working for him as underpaid indigenous trainees. The mining lobby is giving Gillard absolute grief about their indigenous paticipation plan and their whole of government approach.
You see Twigster and his mates thought they was gunna get cheap indigenous labour. The costs to fly in/fly out people from faraway places like Tasmania and New Zealand is killing em.
Now, they are starting to finally realize the depth and scale of the illiteracy and other employment participation problems.
Basically Twiggy learned sweet FA from living with the aboriginal people on a pastoral station....sadly many of the aboriginal people that he grew up with have passed on far too early. Industrialisation of the north will not save the real aboriginal people that live on country. Far more to it than that Twiggy.
They need their culture,and their own self determination bucko...just ask any body that knows anything about indigenous cultures. It is widely known, the UN has mountains of literature on this issue.
Mate, we are sick of evangelists,conquistadors and mining lobbyists ramming sh...t down our throat and using our peoples and their dilemma as political footballs whilst painting themselves to have a halo and wings. Also Nova Perres Kneebone and all your other token blacks should piss off back to where they came as they were assimilated into white culture a long time ago.
