Cowra Local Council

Cowra Wiradjuri people have suffered for over 200years.... Our people suffered genocide (there are several known massacre sites in the area), and dispossession through the Government policies of 'Protection' (the Erambie Mission was built on the Cowra reserve in 1890; it still houses a large community today), Assimilation, Integration and Selfmanagement. Today the Aboriginal community boasts a proud history of political activism and cultural and economic survival.

Now the modern Government want to dispossess the residents again for the sake of a bypass/freeway....

We, the undersigned, demand that Cowra Council and all associated with the proposed bypass/freeway... Go back to the drawing board for a more appropriate location to be found, and that consultation is undertaken with the traditional custodians of the land.... Erambie was established in 1890....

We are not letting the history of OUR PLACE die at the hands of developers and beaurocrats....
