Silly - Dirty Face

Impacting the Australian Worldcon bid?

Down in Australia, the Aborigines now own Perth... and Melbourne could be next. Could this impact the 2010 Worldcon bid? **

"Perth - A surprise federal court decision granting Aborigines native title to one of Australia's major cities, Perth, sent lawyers, homeowners and officials scurrying to assess the impact on Wednesday. The landmark judgement marks the first time a large metropolitan area in Australia has been ruled to belong to the indigenous people who lived there before white settlers arrived, lawyers said. It could lead to similar claims over other cities such as Sydney and Melbourne, native title specialist lawyer Christine Lovitt told AFP."

** I seriously doubt this will affect the 2010 bid in any way -- I was just being dramatic.
