Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory
6.30 – 8.30pm Tuesday 31st July 2007
The McArthur River region has had a long and troubled history since European settlement. In recent times, a plan to mine and divert the McArthur River has caused strong concern and controversy. The forum will examine the mine’s approval, the Supreme Court decision, and the NT Government’s response, reflecting on their significance for the Northern Territory.
The forum is in support of the Traditional Owners from McArthur River who will be in Darwin for the Federal Court Challenge, 30-31 July.
