A Queensland Greens MP has accused the Premier of ‘dismissing and belittling’ Indigenous people and favouring mining and property developers.
Speaking in Parliament last night, state Greens MP Amy MacMahon slammed the State’s treatment of those protecting sacred sited from development.
Ms MacMahon spoke of three developments threatening Indigenous sacred sites, the Bruce Highway extension in Gympie, property development at Deebing Creek and the construction of a tourist whale interpretive facility on Minjerribah.
The Greens MP said has a habit of dismissing and belittling First Nations people’s concerns if they stand in the way of their projects and big corporate donors.
She suggested Queensland Labor hasn’t learnt from the destruction at Juukan Gorge in the Western Australia’s Pilbara or the fight for the sacred Djap Wurrung trees in Victoria.
