I admire your fight. I suspect Peter Gabriel feels pretty strongly as well or he wouldn't have lent his name to it. Colonialism remains a problem.
 
Well, we lost out to the telco's.  Tower is up.
Wonder if the it will be around as long as the Yeud have been here?..some 60,000 years

The Yeud people are the traditional inhabitants of this area where I live, close to Moore River Western Australia where the story is set.
There is a sacred hill site of the Yeud's not 200 hundred metres from my door.
Currently we locals are contesting with the national telco's to not erect a phone tower on the site out of respect for the Yeud .

The movie "The Rabbit Proof Fence" is a hard look at Australia's history of racism, enslavement and attempted genocide of the original inhabitants.

Advance Australia Fair!
I wish Pete did more soundtracks. He's 2 for 2. (We all know Birdy doesn't count)

My favorite cut on this album is "Running to the Rain." It's truly transcendent.
