Land matters( Visual )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, Aborigines have been granted ownership of certain Australian national parks. Some environmental groups now fear that moves to achieve "economic justice" for Aborigines will lead to overdevelopment of these national parks for economic usages, with detrimental consequences to the ecosystems they protect. There is a growing schism between Green and Aboriginal activist groups over this issue, driving a wedge between two groups who up to now have been allied in most respects. This program focusses on Kakadu National Park and the parks around Jervis Bay in New South Wales. Studio guests are: Peter Bridgewater, the head of the Biodiversity Group of Environment Australia and Director of the National Parks and Wildlife Service ; Aden Ridgeway, Executive Director of the New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council ; and Jeff Angel, Director of the Total Environment Centre in Sydney

The company alleges they've been unlawfully interfering with its trade and business for years and giving Gunns a bad name.
