'He's taken the land. He believes it is his. He won't give it back.' A documentary about the impact of the Kalgoorlie gold rush on the Aboriginal people in the region. Aboriginal fringe dwellers of the Goldfields of Western Australia tell their own story of what happened to their people when they were invaded by tens of thousands of miners in the great Kalgoorlie gold rush in the 1890's. The film shows the living conditions of the survivors living in horrific poverty next to flourishing gold and nickel mines and uranium developments, and of the Maralinga tests and those who died there, as the victims to British bombs and official neglect. -- General note: Copyright permission of both Robert Bropho and Jan Roberts is needed prior to any lending or copying.
