Groups lodge rival claims for land sought by Woodside | The Australian

Groups lodge rival claims for land sought by Woodside | The Australian: It is believed West Australian government lawyers are concerned about the potential impact of the vote, which took place this week at a gathering of about 100 people in the Kimberley.

Western Australia Premier Colin Barnett, a strong supporter of the project, declined to comment yesterday.

Mr Roe said he was unable to comment on the vote, but sources familiar with the process say a longstanding native title claim by the Goolarabooloo Jabirr-Jabirr people over James Price Point is likely to be deregistered in the Federal Court as a result of the vote.


  1. Mindblowing result.
    First time Barnett,KLC,Woodslime didn't come straight out and say - this won't change anything
    Looks like Joe shut their big mouths this time

  2. Its going to take the lawyers and government departments several days before they catch up and start to really appreciate the legal ramifications of this separation of the claims groups and the native title claim. It calls into question every one of the "agreements" signed on their behalf without true and informed consent. Tip toe through the !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. A silent man is easily reputed wise.

  4. "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."
