Preserving sacred places in Australia

Australian Aboriginals face similar issues regarding protecting their sacred sites as do American Indians.

The Sydney Morning Herald of Dec 11-12 reported on page 4 about a mining company that is being opposed by the Mingaletta Aboriginal Women’s Group, who are trying to procted a cave with Aboriginal hand stencil art.

The development plans of the mining company, Rocla Quarry Products, will allegedly destroy the cave.
