It has been proposed to increase the catchment of the Dunoon Dam by erecting another dam near The Channon.
This area has been carefully inspected by Rous Water and local Indigenous elders.
They have noted Aboriginal burial sites and relics. The stone relics can be relocated.
Not so for the scar trees and the burial sites.
If we feel repugnance at the desecration of the Indigenous sites by Rio Tinto recently, then how can we approve the flooding of sacred areas by this dam?
If Black Lives Matter than surely Black Deaths Matter as well.
