NT Space Wars Heat up as Indigenous Jobs Claims Rubbished


THE Aboriginal Corporation whose land will be used for Australia’s first space base has rubbished claims the project will deliver no jobs for indigenous people.

“If someone came down and had a chat to us we’d tell them, we’ve already got that mapped out how many people will be employed,” he said.

Mr Helms’ comments came in response to claims made by independent Nhulunbuy MLA Yingiya Mark Guyula at NT Estimates last week. Mr Guyula accused the NT Government of pushing the project “for its own good”, and said it would bring no benefits to the local Yolngu people.
