On Tuesday the 26 June 2012 a motion to suspend ‘standing orders’ at the regular Trades and Labour Council Meeting to hear a presentation from Comrade Davey Thomason regarding the ‘Stand Up For The Burrup’ Campaign, was unanimously supported. A motion was carried to support the campaign and apply pressure on the Australian Government.

The above members of the Geelong Trades and Labour Council DEMAND that the Australian Government act now for the preservation of the ancient sacred rock art at Murujuga/the Dampier Archipelago. We DEMAND that this area be nominated for UNESCO World Heritage Listing before it is lost.

We would also like to congratulate the organisers of this campaign and offer our solidarity
