We are 'Save Our Songlines', Traditional Custodians standing up for protection of Murujuga/The Burrup Peninsula.
The Murujuga rock art is the world's oldest creation story and is connected to our ancient Songlines, including the Seven Sisters dreaming.
It is threatened by industrial developments such as Woodside's Scarborough gas project and Perdaman's planned urea plant.
Josie Alec and Raelene Cooper, Traditional Custodians of Murujuga, are travelling to the UN next week to speak at the 15th Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. This is our chance to tell our story to the whole world, and bring attention to destruction to cultural heritage in Australia.
We need funds for flights, accomodation and expenses in Geneva.
The wider community will gather on July 10 at Murujuga to March for Country and show our opposition to new industry on the Burrup.
We want to protect the environment, care for country, and save our kids' futures.
The event will be a celebration of our culture and a chance for us all to tell our stories of Murujuga.
We need funds for:
- Transport and travel
- Bus hire
- Food and drink
- T shirts
- Art supplies
- Shade and chairs
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
