Power must come to First Nations people

News / Event start date

Rio Tinto’s destruction of Juukan Gorge sent shock waves around the world. In the rush to develop clean energy projects we must not repeat similar mistakes, where the expansion of renewables becomes another action done “to” First Nations people rather than “with” them.

The clean energy boom, while necessary, is not cost free. It would be a terrible irony if the renewables industry was granted the same licence to wreck our land and culture as mining.
