The Leard Forest Alliance has made a commitment not to undertake any protests to show support for the Gomeroi’s visit tomorrow to sacred sites desecrated by Idemitsu Resources’ Boggabri mine.
Tomorrow 90 elders, and traditional owners will visit sacred scar trees to conduct ceremony in the mining tenement of Idemitsu Resources’ Boggabri facility. The Boggabri mine is set to expand destroying more of the Leard State Forest.
Similar approaches by the Gomeroi to Whitehaven Coal, constructing the Maules Creek mine in the Leard State Forest, have been consistently knocked back.
“We are pleased that the Gomeroi have access to some of their sacred sites within the Boggabri coal mining area, and in good faith, make a commitment not to launch any actions on the day of the visit.” Phil Evans, Leard Forest Alliance spokesperson said.
The Leard Forest Alliance signed a Protection Treaty with the Gomeroi on the 13th February this year.
