Australia to ban climbing on Uluru from 2019

Australian Aboriginals are wresting control of parts of their land from the descendants of British Aboriginals.

Australia to ban climbing on Uluru from 2019

Uluru is a sacred site for Aboriginal Australians
Climbing on Australia's iconic Uluru landmark will be banned from October 2019, local authorities have confirmed.
The board of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park voted unanimously to end the climb because of indigenous sensitivities.
The giant red monolith in the Northern Territory is a sacred site for Aboriginal Australians.
Local people have long asked visitors not to climb the outcrop, which was known for many years as Ayers Rock.
Signs at the start of the climb ask people to abstain from going up in respect to the traditional law of the Anangu Aboriginal people, the custodians of the land.
"It is an extremely important place, not a playground or theme park like Disneyland," board chairman and Anangu man Sammy Wilson said on Wednesday.
"If I travel to another country and there is a sacred site, an area of restricted access, I don't enter or climb it, I respect it. "

He said the Anangu people had felt intimidation over the years to keep the climb open because it was a top tourist attraction.
However the group had consistently wanted to close the site, a sacred men's area, because of its cultural significance.
"Closing the climb is not something to feel upset about but a cause for celebration. Let's come together; let's close it together," he said.
The board was made up of eight traditional owners as well as four government officials.

Only 16% of visitors made the climb between 2011 to 2015, according to the board's data.
The Unesco World Heritage-listed monolith was handed back to its traditional owners in 1985. The ban will commence on 26 October, 2019 - the 34th anniversary of the handover.

Don't forget the aerogard! This rock is sacred to Aboriginals as are all rocks, this just happens to be a big rock
and many goons have been drunk in and around this rock which makes it a very special rock.
"A dingo ate my baby" at this special rock or was it a sacrifice to the great Aboriginal rock god.

Fuckwits will always be with us.

Call centre operators pretending to be an engineer “in charge of tens of millions of dollar projects.” Pretending they are married with three kids yet post during the day on Christmas Day. Lonely! Poor bastard.

Guess IQ wanted to be an engineer but dropped out in year one.

Wallies are already banned from Uluru.

Wallies are discriminated regularly on various levels for no reason what so ever, I intend on opening an anti Wally discrimination center on behalf of all Wallies.
The big rock should be hitched up to a Toyota and towed to a place more hospitable, and the Abbos should not be so precious, plenty more rocks in Australia to worship.

As a blackfella once said to me, "who gives a fuck" Those words have stuck with me through time, a very wise man.

And it is in their control and they say “no climbing!” that is it, case closed.

All the climbing has damaged the rock, time to stop it.

Not really but it is a crock of fucken shit. I've climbed the cunt 3 times because that's just what you did and no one gave a rats arse. It will do nothing for the blackfullas other than keep a few half white cunts happy. If it improved their way of life , increased employment facilitated edecation kept em off the piss , stopped em flogging their women and abusing their kids I and everyone else would be all for it. Oddly enough it will do none of these things. I take some comfort in knowing cunts like you pecca and pink will sleep soundly at night because no cunt can climb on a rock though. Meanwhile the brothers can continue on living in old cars and under tarps dying 20 years younger than the rest of us whilst the leftys pull themselves over another assault and perceived victory on our way of life.

No one gave a rats arse about it because Aboriginals weren't even CONSIDERED. FUCKWIT. I wonder WHY all these bad things happen?? Couldn't have anything to do with 150 yrs of attempted genocide, could it.? YOUR attitude is exactly that of the master.. the fucking slaver . If you are an indigenous Australian you are a traitor to your people. If you are not.. you are the perfect example of the UGLY AUSTRALIAN. So FUCK YOU Nato. So dull you don't even have an original name. GO FUCK YOURSELF. PREFERABLY somewhere like Canberra. Go and impale yourself on the Spear on Black Mountain.

Not my intention. The indigenous people are beginning to understand they have the power to change their own lives for the better. Thanks to Mr Mabo, native peoples are starting, but JUST, starting to realize their true and intrinsic value to the world.
The govts of the States are doing their damndest to stop this self-acceptance and empowerment, by locking up their children, and torturing them. Doesn't speak well of Australian values... or does it? :mad

I'm sure you have an opinion.?
