The Leftist Green Marxist harp on about closing the gap between the aboriginal population and the non-aboriginal but do they really mean it?
‘The original Australians have plenty of challenges, but right now it’s the human hating, anti-progress Greens that present their greatest threat.
The success of Australia’s mining, oil and gas industries is synonymous with the success of many remote, rural and, often predominantly Aboriginal, communities. In terms of employment growth amongst indigenous communities over the last 20 years, the mining industry wins hands down.
Miners and drillers have thrown millions at the education and training of Aboriginal workers right across the Country; most major miners have a deliberate policy of encouraging and, ultimately employing, Aboriginal workers.
Western Australia’s iron mines and oil and gas industries have benefited from having newly skilled and enthusiastic locals join them. The same is true in Queensland’s coal mines and gas fields, as well.
But, the turnaround in opportunities and employment for Aboriginal Australians comes despite the dogged efforts of green-voting, inner-city elites to kill off Australia’s resources sector – coal, oil and gas, in particular.
Which brings us to the Top End.
Australia’s Northern Territory has the highest proportion of Aboriginals in its population, with many of its remote communities decrepit and dysfunctional. Which means that the prospect of an onshore gas exploration and exploitation boom in the Beetaloo Basin 600km south of Darwin offers hope for a great number of people who reside at the margins of Australian society.
However, Australia’s Greens and their propaganda wing, GetUp! couldn’t care less about the prospect of meaningful employment and the chance for Aboriginal people to drag their communities out of abject poverty. No, instead, these characters would deny and deprive Aboriginal Australians of any chance of improving their lot. Wicked doesn’t cover it.’https://stopthesethings.com/2020/11/01/greens-anti-mining-stance-depriving-australian-aboriginals-of-real-jobs-opportunities-for-progress/
