Tiwi Islands – Northern Territory

Senator Christine Milne on Tiwi Islands

Posted by laurenmellor83 on September 19, 2007

Just before 1pm today, Northern Territory time, Senator Christine Milne spoke about the Tiwi Islands in the Australian Senate. The speech questioned to the breaching of environmental conditions, financial improprieties and arrangements for the project and the landclearing of native vegetation.

This was contrasted with the Howard Government’s position of landclearing in the tropics, where they have allocated 200 million to reduce landclearing. 

More to come…
