As you know, the WA Government has released proposed amendments to the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972. YMAC is extremely concerned about these proposed changes as they appear to be aimed at speeding up the approvals process for developers and industry, and do very little to improve the protection for Aboriginal heritage.
The legislation in its current form is not acceptable. It must reflect a modern view. It must be consistent with similar legislation, Australia-wide. It is time to stand united, and speak with one voice until Aboriginal heritage is given the same respect as Built heritage. For more information click here.
