Well, recently, the Pitjantjatjara tribe, indigenous to Uluru, requested that the government of Australia change its laws so people, more specifically tourists, won’t be able to climb it.
This change comes after Pitjantjatjara tribe wanted people to respect their “Please, no climbing” request around Uluru. The government, though, stated ( and this has been simplified )......
“Yeah, yeah. We’ll change it after we’re done booting people out of parliament for having 2 or more citizenships and when the amount of people that choose to climb it drops below 20%.”
Fun-totally-not-legit-fact: ( Not being smart, surprisingly ) I made up the citizenship part in the simplified statement. But it isn’t that made up. It’s just that parliament didn’t say the citizenship bit in the Uluru law statement..
Now, I don’t really have an opinion on this topic, because there are 2 sides to this argument, and I’ll present them now.
Some say that it’s good that the government’s banning the climb because we need to respect the Aboriginal people more, but others say that Uluru doesn’t belong to anyone.
What’s your opinion?
Anyways, I’ll see you later!
