Chinese turn up heat on the Tip of Cape York

The Queensland Labor Government is believed to have transferred three valuable and strategically placed perpetual leases at the Tip of Cape York to an Aboriginal corporation which has stated it will transfer the leases to Chinese nationals.

Today Cairns News received a report of a Chinese delegation wearing suits seen in the main street of Bamaga, walking away from the local council HQ towards the Bamaga Resort.

Tourists do not wear suits on Cape York Peninsula.

The iconic and strategic Tip of Cape York Peninsula, soon to controlled by Chinese nationals?

The opposition to Chinese ownership of any more Australian land is overwhelmingly evident from countless comments on Cairns News overĀ  past years. Furthermore private emails received by Cairnsnews from local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders certainly reflect widespread opposition to any foreign, never mind Chinese ownership or control.

It is now up to governments to prevent the Chinese nationals from getting the final foothold in its ‘string of pearls’, Northern Australia.

Communications from military ships, Border Force vessels and aircraft patrolling the Torres Straits could easily be intercepted from such a strategic position.

Tell your politicians to act now.
