Reckless, Desperate Liberals No Respect for Aboriginal Heritage

Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens' Leader and Aboriginal Affairs spokesperson 

It is now patently clear the Premier is more concerned about the Liberals' prospects in Braddon than he is about 'resetting the relationship' with the Aboriginal community.

As a result of Will Hodgman's desperation and weakness, one of the world's richest cultural landscapes is under renewed threat from off-road vehicles.

Liberals Show Two Faces on Aboriginal Heritage

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens' Leader and Aboriginal Affairs spokesperson

Amendments to the Aboriginal Relics Act are an improvement on the current, racist legislation, but the bill tabled in Parliament today is both a lost opportunity and a clear sign that the Liberals wear two faces on Aboriginal heritage issues. 

The Bill tries to dress up the most racist law on Tasmania’s statutes instead of engaging in meaningful conversation with Tasmania’s First People about robust, empowering Aboriginal heritage protection.
