Murujuga (Burrup Peninsula) De-registered

One of the world’s most prolific and oldest rock art galleries was last week de-registered by the Department of Aboriginal Affairs. This is due to controversial new guidelines which outline that a site must be ‘devoted to a religious use rather than a place subject to mythological story, song or belief’. This new definition completely disregards Aboriginal law and belief systems, and will only see more sacred and significant sites left unprotected.¬†Anne McQuire, from the New Matilda, reports on the de-registration here.
