"We've got to take some affirmative action to stop this racist piece of legislation ... We're going to throw a big rock on top of the tourist industry ... We will close the climb and no one will climb Uluru ever again - no one."

White Australia had better wake up!

Beat me to it, here's another link. I can't help but think that, in the long run, this will only have a negative impact on the Aboriginal community. There may be some unforseen consequences. Certainly, tourist dollars help the local communities, if only in an indirect way, so it doesn't make much sense to discourage money spending visitors.

Yeh, the the article reckons it's been threatened before but came to nothing due to the incomes the local aboriginal people get from the massive tourism.

Even if it doesn't happen again atleast it's keeping the Australian Aboriginal issues in the world wide media.
