First Nations' Group won't talk land expropriation

PARLIAMENT - An advocacy group for Indigenous First Nation people is refusing to take part in discussions around land expropriation without compensation.

They feel as though first nation people are being left out.

Anthony Williams, from Indigenous First Nation Advocacy SA, said it is absolutely difficult to talk about alternatives.

"As the First Nation People, we don’t think that we are the appropriate people to talk about land expropriation without compensation, because we are left outside of the discussion," said Williams.

"So when we talk about expropriation of land with or without, we are not part of the discussion, never [have] been part of the discussion.

"Hence we are asking, let’s remove entirely, let’s remove the sub-section.”
