Come to think of it, I have not seen a single aboriginal explain the need for the closure. But I have seen plenty of non-Aboriginals explain the need to respect their religious beliefs by banning white people.


I did a quick Google search, and this came up straight away:

"The traditional owners of Uluru ask you to respect our law and culture by not climbing Uluru.

"We Anangu have a responsibility to teach and safeguard visitors to our land. The climb can be dangerous. Too many people have died while attempting to climb Uluru. Many others have been injured while climbing.

"We feel great sadness when a person dies or is hurt on our land. We worry about you and we worry about your family. Our traditional law teaches us the proper way to behave."


Well written by a white person ... an arse covering exercise for WH&S so they can't be sued.

Ignoring everything else whats the actual point of climbing it versus say walking up stairs.

In a time of universal deceit — telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

No evidence whatsoever it can be attributed to George Orwell or Eric Arthur Blair (in fact the same guy)

I would say that the only reason people are climbing it now, is to deliberately upset people.

Pretty sad.

Apparently less than 20 per cent of visitors to Uluru actually do it. And they have had incidents of people playing golf, doing it nude etc.

Yes. Why climb it?
I climbed the Himalaya's (6800m) and I was embarressed by all the 'rubbish' in the Everest valley and around Everest Base Camp (lots more around the bases of many Mountains). Did you see that clip a few months back of how 12 climbers died in one period where there was a few hundred metres of a line-up near the summit packed with climbers waiting for their 15mins of sumit fame? Pretty sad really.
With people dying and freaks doing nude climbs - I kinda don't blame the 'Protectors of the Land' (cuz Whitey don't) wanting to stop the stupidity.

From above. Uluru (not that boring Christianised name) is shaped like a human heart and now it has an ugly trodden path 'scar' upon it.

A far lower rate than in the general community....

Uluru is the upturned tip of a 26km long underground former 'river' that became hard over time with its sediment.
The Olga's are the same.

It's the Head of the Snake (Rainbow Serpent).  Wink Grin


...maybe its a fossilised head of a giant Sand Worm from the Dune novels.

We could do with a 'House Atreides' to rid us of these USA Harkonnens and British 'Imperials' along with the International C.H.O.A.M corporations who now own most of our best Beers for starters.  Roll Eyes

Cool book is Dune. I wants me one of those suits you can pee and poop in which turns it into drinking water.

They are making the Remake of Dune.
But this time they are taking it book by book for each movie rather than try and cram it all in with just one movie.
Apparently they are aiming it as something that takes the next step after where Game of Thrones finished.

The original was a pretty good stoner movie though. After wandering around Video Easy for an hour and not finding anything, I'd just grab Dune, again, then grab a kebab and go rub one out on my extra large bean bag.
