If aboriginal people in this region are ever to progress at the rate expected by politicians and others it is essential that they have the ability to be both economocally and culturally "independent" of those who claim to know best how to address the issues but really have no prolonged on the ground experience. The funds required to develop and obtain the benefits of land within the Broome townsite as well as other lands rightfully awarded under the Native Title process will provide enormous opportunities over generations to come for aboriginal people to determine their own transition with their own "wealth". The proposed site is like a pimple on an elephants backside when taken in the context of the vastness of this region and the thousands of kilometres of coastline. Like all development over the past 25 years of Broome's development that has been vocally and vigourously opposed by passionate people it is all about management and balance. Without these contentious developments we would still be getting our newspapers twice a week, have no high school and substandard health care, poor communications. No growth no votes - no votes no interest from any political party in power. This is a decision that has to be made by the traditional owners and the rest of us should butt out unless needed to advise on management and planning issues.

Too true Allan... Let just make sure there is something to see up there in say 15 years and not a big ugly scar of days gone by...
