Qld Labor Party hands out more meaningless land titles to Aborigines
Filed by Jim O’Toole, Townsville Bureau traveling Cape York since Tuesday
The Queensland Labor Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, was in the Northern Peninsula Area on Wednesday to give away 362,000 hectares of Cape York to Aboriginal and Islander groups in a bid to create a separate Aboriginal state.
The vast areas of granted land will be jointly managed by Queensland Parks and Wildlife and traditional owner groups but the disingenuous Labor Party is the worst of Indian Givers, knowing well the carefully crafted title deeds do not allow for any meaningful economic activities such as cattle production, commercial fishing or farming.
Australia’s political party duopoly is intent on forcing indigenous communities to rely on welfare, or ‘sit down money’ as it is colloquially known, this being the best method of control.
The apparent generosity of the Queensland Labor Party has not gone down well with rival Aboriginal groups, who say the land has been returned to the wrong people.
Self-proclaimed traditional owners have taken centre stage through stand over tactics against other corporation members and inserting themselves into clans without presenting any accurate genealogy.
Several claimants of the Tip of Cape York, known as Pajinka who had title deeds handed to them nearly three years ago were not legitimate owners and did not belong to the mainland.
“One claimant who has assumed ownership has no family ties to the Australian mainland; his family came from the Solomon Islands,” a source said.
Similarly in Wednesday’s handover at Injinoo, the main protagonist, being driven by Cape York Land Council, claimed to be a traditional owner but comes from the Torres Strait and had no early family ties to the mainland.
The source said this self-proclaimed traditional owner was quoted by the Cairns Post newspaper but should not have been allowed to speak for local people.
“This fella is a bully and stands over weaker community members and is under investigation by Thursday Island CIB for fraud and assault, so how come the Cairns Post always gets it wrong?” the source asked in the wake of numerous other erroneous publications.
The ALP intends to re-write history by dropping any references to original white settlers the Jardine Brothers also by renaming the Denham Group (islands) National Park.
Meanwhile Northern Peninsula Area communities and Torres Strait residents who are almost totally reliant on getting the majority of their food supplies on regular Sea Swift barges from Cairns are feeling the brunt of high fuel and grocery prices.
Although freight costs for some goods are subsidised by government, nearly every item in the three mainland supermarkets is on average 30 per cent higher than Cairns.
Particularly after Sea Swift, a company wholly owned by Queensland Investment Corporation, a subsidiary of the State Labor Government, announced a 14.5 per cent hike in freight charges last week.
Usually fruit and vegetables are inedible after 14 days travel from Atherton Tablelands growers to Rocklea Markets in Brisbane and back to Cairns then three days at sea on a barge to Peninsula supermarkets.
Bread suffers a similar fate. Fuel delivered by Sea Swift is $2.85 a litre and rising.
“So much for the Labor Party claiming to care about Aborigines and Islanders,” said a local builder whose freight costs have gone from $500 per pallet of material to more than $750.
A number of community members have left the Northern Peninsula Area in search of work and a more affordable existence since the Covid plandemic ran its course.
The Queensland Labor Party is intent on removing all white pastoralists and all cattle from Cape York under a ten year plan agreed to by the federally-funded Natural Resource Management group which does not have any of the remaining Peninsula cattle producers on its far northern board.
Peninsula cattle producers have accused NRM of a sell-out because Cairns News has discovered that all cattle are to be removed from the Peninsula within ten years, hence the continuous cattle eradication by Mareeba helicopter pilot Des Butler and at least one shooter, Graham Woods supplied by Australian Wildlife Conservancy at Piccaninny Plains south of Weipa.
Cape York Land Council, a supposedly representative native title body has its grubby fingers all over Peninsula land claims ensuring heavily mineralised areas such as the Shelburne Bay silica deposit were included in Aboriginal freehold land grants.
It seems the only people it represents are the elite blackfellas of the $33 billion Aboriginal industry.
The CYLC and its business arm, Balkanu, have had their hands in the pockets of multinational mining companies for decades ensuring they will collect their dues after the depopulation of the Peninsula and the mining starts.
Geological surveys have found silica, ilmenite, rutile, zircon, diamonds, rare earth, gold, coal, bauxite, tin and natural gas in abundance which is why these vast areas are locked up at the behest of the state’s principal mortgagee, Rothschild Bank to which it owes some $90 billion.
The ALP is developing a land bank of immense value from which it will receive massive royalties from multinational quarrying operations. Indigenous corporations will receive a pittance and eventually be left with a big hole in the ground and little to eat.
The City of London bankers have ensured their puppet regimes will never allow downstream mineral refining or smelting, let alone any manufacturing.
A company search of indigenous spokesman Noel Pearson’s Cape York Partnerships reveals several retired or active bank CEO’s and other industry notables on the board.
These CYP board members have bank connections including Westpac, National Bank of Australia, various merchant banks, a Secretary of the Department of Treasury, Macquarie Bank, a former private Secretary to the infamous PM Bob Hawke, P&O Cruiseships, Bank of Melbourne (owned by the Jewish fraternity), ANZ, an advisor to the nearby ALP sanctuary of Wattle Hills holding, mining contractors, a Wik representative, Aboriginal company Bama Services and not forgetting the lawyers.
