    please after signing the petition, I strongly urge people to e-mail The ILC at ilcinfo@ilc.gov.au and you can call these number ILC Public Affairs Branch – 08 8100 7100 and Free Call: 1800 818 490 to demand Dumbartung be conserved and not close down. there aren’t many places that show the true history of Australia, celebrate the indigenous culture which is the longest one of its kind it all of humanity, and have a place of memorial of aboriginal people who’ve lost their lives due to racist policies of the past and present. There Healing Centers for women who are victims to domestic violence and those who’ve lost loved ones and friends to the suicide epidemic ought to be further funded, and conserved, not have their operations halted and threatened to close down.
