      24 Apr 13: "Greens WA Member for the Mining and Pastoral
      Region and Spokesperson on Aboriginal issues, Robin
      Chapple MLC, today described his feelings of joy after
      having attended the Declaration Ceremony for the
      Birriliburu Indigenous Protected Area (IPA), held
      yesterday at Well 6 on the Canning Stock Route.
      "At this time in our history, when it seems only conflict
      between people is newsworthy, what a joyous event was
      witnessed out here in the Little Sandy Desert bio-region.
      "After a long and thorough development process, this is
      a magnificent result for the Martu people, who have now
      achieved full recognition of their role in managing this
      land for thousands of years. ... " said Mr Chapple. ... "

      WOODSIDE & GOVERNMENT WILL NOT PAY $1.5 BILLION

      The Stringer: Woodside & Government will not pay $1.5 billion
      http://thestringer.com.au/woodside-government-will-not-pay-1-5-billion/
      26 Apr 13: "Woodside Petroleum stated the obvious in that
      it will not be making any payments, ex-gratia or otherwise
      to Jabirr Jabirr and Goolarabooloo Traditional Owners and
      to their communities for signing up to the $1.5 billion
      benefits package. As far as they are concerned the deal
      has fallen through and the land use agreement had been
      subject to the $40 billion dollar gas hub going ahead.
      Now that the gas hub deal has been shelved so has the land
      use agreement that was voted on by many of the Traditional
      Owners but under a cloud of compulsory acquisition land
      threats by Western Australian Premier Colin Barnett."

      Greens WA Member for the Mining and Pastoral Region Robin

      "considerable" losses suffered by the Shire in its work
      associated with the abandoned Browse LNG plant at James
      Price Point (JPP)," Mr Chapple said.
      "There is no way this can just be dismissed as part of the
      normal running of a local government authority - Broome
      Shire has never had to handle anything on this scale, and
      was even at the point of hiring extra staff. ... "
