Queensland Witness
'I don't support that court case, because if that traditional ownership comes in we lose everything. So I don't support that court case. But anyway I went into fight for my own land. Like today Queensland Government is here. It's something like a protector and provider. You see. Queensland helping us build our houses. So we worry about that traditional ownership. The Queensland Government just let us go. So we have no protection, something like that. So we worried about that.'
