Right now, the Victorian Andrews Government is preparing to evict people at the Djap Wurrung Protection Embassy and threatening Traditional Custodians and supporters with removal and arrest. Head Lore Man Zellanach Djab Mara was arrested for stealing pallets, and the condition of his release was to silence him in the media.
They have issued a 14 day eviction notice, that has now expired and preliminary works have already begun on the Western Highway duplication that threatens sacred Women's country, djab Wurrung songlines and over 260 culturally significant trees.
The camp is calling for immediate support on the ground, but for those unable to be there, it is imperative that we make back up the voices of Djab Wurrung Traditional Custodians and make ourselves heard.
Join us in calling on Premier Daniel Andrews, Minister for Major Projects Jacinta Allan, Planning Minister Richard Wynne, and Minister for Roads Jaala Pulford, to cancel the eviction notice, and direct Major Roads Victoria to restart planning for this project, with Djab Wurrung at the centre of negotiations
