Campers at the Nyoongar Tent Embassy on Perth’s Heirisson Island has been given until midday today (Thursday) to pack up and leave. Last week the Embassy declared the site a refuge for homeless people being displaced from their communities… but W.A. Today reports the City of Perth has arranged for welfare support agencies to visit the camp and offer support to homeless individuals. The paper reports the city is planning for the worst case scenario of forced eviction.

Marianne McKay tells CAAMA the W.A. Government is breaking its own laws by forcibly removing her people from the island.
