Mining mogul Andrew 'Twiggy' Forrest has made his fortune from iron-ore production. In this past financial year alone, he has earned $100 million. He supports Indigenous employment schemes such as GenerationOne, but he critiques social welfare. He has pledged $65 million to Western Australian universities. This is the largest donation in Australian history. Yet he is locked in conflict with the Yindjibarndi people, the traditional landowners of the Pilbara Region. #sociology
The Opposition is raising questions about the Liberal Government's commitment to multiculturalism. It's a worry that the Coalition has been using exclusionary language of assimilation & "illegal migrants." For example: "We become Australians and we assimilate at different paces. It's a process really, it's a journey."
