Alleged Ayers Rock ‘traditional owners’ are nothing but trespassers

by Kev Moore

From the speech by Mr. Peter English, given at the launching of his book – Land Rights – Birth Rights, now available from all League bookshops, Price: “$16.00 posted. The unfortunate part about all this is that the antecedents of some members of the group now claiming Ayers Rock as their former tribal territory did not begin to move in and take over the region until AFTER the true traditional owners, (the Jankuntatjara) had voluntarily vacated the area some fifty or more years ago, and secondly, the party now being planned, which is estimated to cost the Treasury $250,000, may never be held.

“Recent anthropological research has uncovered a wealth of evidence dating back to 1936 which proves beyond any doubt that the majority of those aborigines now officially recognised as ‘the traditional owners of the Ayers Rock region’ and accepted by the Federal Government as “The Mititjulu Community” are, in the eyes of the few remaining descendants of the true traditional owners, nothing but trespassers on tribal territory that never at any time, even in the recent past, belonged to the antecedents of those now claiming ‘traditional ownership’ of the Ayers Rock region.

“My understanding of the present position in Central Australia (and my advice is as recent as two weeks ago) is that the remaining few descendants of the relatively small tribal group whose former territory once included Ayers Rock and the Olgas are violently opposed to the Federal Government’s proposal to hand their traditional homelands over to anyone, least of all to those they now look upon as ‘trespassers’.

Traditional Owners Want N.T. to Control Ayers Rock; “I understand that these very old men insist that the existing status quo be preserved where control of the Ayers Rock – Mt.

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen’s nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no ‘government’ of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.
