/ The Informer / News & Politics / Changes to Native Title & risking death for Uganda’s LGBTI film festival

 

The Federal Government just made amendments to the Native Title Act. Now, for companies to get an Indigenous Land Use Agreement, only 50% of Traditional Owners will have to give the green light.

Geoffrey Winters, Director of Indigenous Law at Chalk & Behrendt law firm and interim-Chair of the Australian Institute of Aboriginal & Torres Striaght Islander Studies joins The Informer to talk about the changes.

Then we cross to Uganda where Kamoka Hassan is fighting to bring back the country’s only LGBTI event for a second year. Hassan tells The Informer team why he wants the Queer Kampala Film Festival to keep running, even if it means risking his own life to do so.
