ALERT - Destruction of Sacred Sites and Rio Tinto

Posted 10 Jun 2020 02:00PM

Many people have expressed shock and dismay at the destruction of two sacred sites of the local Puutu Kunti Kurrama people by Rio Tinto at Juukan Gorge WA last week.  46,000 years of extraordinary history in our nation was sacrificed for profit.

They were not only extremely important sites for Aboriginal communities, but also they were extremely important sites for archaeological understanding of the distant past in Australia and for all Australians to respect and acknowledge the privilege of having in our nation the oldest continuing culture on the planet.
