WIK

The Harradine Compromise

The passage by the Senate of the 'Harradine Compromise' on the WIK 10 Point Plan has guaranteed a continued uncertainty of land tenure. 

ALL Australian landholders, pastoralists, mining and tourism industries face losses that will be calculated in the billions of dollars as a result of an unjust and unworkable piece of legislation.

In fact, and reality, the Senate decision has placed the Native Title debacle back into the High Court for Constitutional determination.

NO political party or politician, in either the House of Representatives or the Senate, has a mandate from the Australian People to decide the fate of this Nation with regard to Native Title.

The party politicians have allowed minority groups to focus the Native Title controversy into a race debate, whereas it have nothing to do with race, but definitely has everything to do with Land Tenure and monitory compensation.

The Native Title Act 1993 is UNWORKABLE and through the process of a duly constituted referendum, to eliminate further division within the community, this issue MUST be decided at the ballot box by a majority of the Australian People.
