Background article of interest:

Green Left: NT landowners battle for a healthy river - 15 June 2013 -
... The Country Liberal Party government has made changes to the allocation process, which threatens the Roper River region’s environment, as well as pastoral and Indigenous interests. ... Depleting the aquifer also threatens water supply to the downstream community of Ngukurr: the Roper supplies the community but significant salinity migration will render the water unusable by the time it breaks off to supply Ngukurr. ... raised concerns that water taken from the aquifer by mining companies is not counted in the total water allocation allowed, as mining permits are handled by a separate government department. So in fact the total amount of water taken in any given year could far exceed the 36 thousand gigalitre cap.

Our Generation DVD: "Ich habe diesen Film hier aufgenommen, weil er exemplarisch steht für verschiedenste brennende Konflikte um indigene Gruppierungen und Regierungen oder Wirtschaftskonzernen weltweit. Hier prallt altes Wissen um einen harmonischen Umgang mit der Erde auf ein sehr junges Verhalten, das sich der Konsequenzen seines Handelns nicht bewusst ist. Es wird deutlich, wie die australische Regierung ungebrochen kolonialistisch weiteragiert...."
