Cape York Alliance to fight for traditional owners on claim

The Cape York Alliance is combating the Cape York Land Council, and its Cape York Claim One which is currently before the Federal Court.
The Alliance is acting on behalf of 162 traditional owners who wish to join the claim, but had previously been ignored.
The move follows allegations the Cape York Land Council has failed to meet its obligations and responsibility to ensure all people impacted by the claim are consulted.
The chair of the Cape York Allowance, Don de Busch, says it’s about establishing trust between all parties.
