Wangan and Jagalingou people demand human rights
Wangan and Jagalingou senior cultural custodian Adrian Burragubba led a protest outside the Queensland Parliament on August 30 to demand that Wangan and Jagalingou human rights be respected and that the sacred Doongmabulla Springs be protected.
He said the Adani mine would be stopped and called on the government and investors to walk away from the coal mine in the Galillee Basin.
