Gamilaraay means “No” to Santos!

Yarma (hello),

The name ”Gamilaraay” means ”gamil”-having, ”gamil” being the word for “no” (from Wikipedia).

Santos should heed this call (details below) from the Kamilaroi people.

Gamilaraay means NO to CSG, no to exploitation of Kamilaroi land.

The claim in Wikipedia that the Gamilaraay language is moribund (dead) is false. I know three Kamilaroi people who speak the language. There are bound to be more.
