Media Release 25th Feb 2015: Mediation

A mediation meeting with the Redfern Tent Embassy and their legal representatives was due to take place yesterday afternoon.

The Aboriginal Housing Company offered to have this meeting in good faith. It was our understanding that this would be a private mediation, so that we could have a genuine and constructive conversation.

We are keen to reschedule the mediation so that it can take place in a constructive way, rather than as a publicity opportunity.

The Aboriginal Housing Company is working to protect the Block — to make sure it remains Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander owned and controlled into the future.

The Pemulwuy Project will provide affordable housing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, as well as businesses and community facilities.
