SENATOR RACHEL SIEWERT

Message to Premier - join the celebration

Senator Rachel Siewert, Thursday, 28th September, 2006

"I call on Premier Alan Carpenter to join the celebration on the steps of Parliament House and acknowledge that he is standing on Noongar Land," Senator Siewert said.

"This is a time to be celebrating the survival of the world's oldest living culture."

"The Greens are strongly supportive of the Federal Court ruling which at last recognises the Noongar peoples' continuing connection to their land. It is disappointing that politicians in both the Labor and Liberal parties are scaremongering, instead of celebrating this event."

"Today's celebration of the successful Noongar land claim at Parliament House in Perth has national significance," Senator Rachel Siewert said.
