Challenged to do more on BLM issues

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | During this past week, I have benefitted immensely by reading and hearing many others' thoughts and words and actions on the subject of race-based vilification.

We all need to unite together, as one

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | The race problem is born by the 'left' and seen to be portrayed by the 'right'.

Barriers ‘worthwhile’ and do save lives

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | I, for one, am convinced the barriers are worthwhile and should be supported.

The horror of Warrigal Creek lingers

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Perhaps some of the cairns may be preserved (or reconstructed) in more appropriate environments such as local museums.

McMillan was not a man to be admired

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | I'm writing in response to the numerous letters regarding Angus McMillan - who supposedly discovered Gippsland. Of course, this is nonsense.

Consultation may have been worthwhile

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | It would probably have been preferable for those in favour of the removal of the cairns to have had a discussion in the community before putting it to a vote.

We need to face up to our local history

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Many of the voices in support of keeping the cairns argue for the preservation of history, but the cairns only tell half the story.

Response to Peter Gardner about cairns

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Wellington Shire Heritage Network has never denied that Gippsland's original inhabitants were treated abysmally by early European settlers.

Those with power must be held to account

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | The symbolism of the Angus McMillan cairns implies community approval and hearty endorsement of self interest trumping basic humane principle - a grave failing that is still around today.

A ‘conflict of interest’ claim is incorrect

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Minerals Council of Australia does not have a 'conflict of interest'.

Reconciliation only on white terms?

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | The outcome of councillor Carolyn Crossley's motion to remove the McMillan cairns from our community is a tragedy.

Is the jury still out on McMillan?

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Terrible things happened, no doubt about it, but the question we should be turning our minds to is how do we fix today's problems, as opposed to trying to rewrite history?
