James Price Point, THE WAY IS FAR FROM BEING CLEARED THERE ARE MANY LEGAL AVENUES & ALL OF THEM WILL BE IMPLEMENTED. ITS ROUND ONE IN A 100 ROUND BOUT.
Mr Roe has been granted one week to appeal. Mr Roe will Appeal to the Full Federal Court and this Appeal is currently being drafted as I blog this.
The ABC's report states “The decision means the newly-appointed representatives (Rita Augustine, Anthony Watson and Uga Paddy) are able to sign a deal with the State Government and Woodside, enabling the $30 billion project to proceed.”
If this is media report is correct, what has happen to the original Heads Of Agreement and where does this leave the Compulsory Acquisition threat.
How does this really work when these newly - appointed representatives still do not have Native Title, or have a Registered Native Title Application?
Meanwhile, as this decision has been handed down Gail McGowan from the Department of State Development are currently at the Mercure Inn, in Broome, meeting with Kimberley Land Council to discuss the Indigenous Land Use Agreement.
Considering, that the decision was only handed down at 9.30am this morning, its interesting that they have wasted no time in jumping into ILUA negotiations. Its also highly questionable why this meeting had been even scheduled prior to today's Court Announcement or before a decision had been handed down?
The clouds are gathering, lighting is flashing and the storms of opposition is growing
