Howard's land grab UPDATE

GetUp! has posted an update on their blog to the campaign to get the Australian Senate to defer voting on the ammendments to the Aboriginal Land Rights legistlation in Northern Territory (which I blogged on yesterday):
More than 23,000 Australians have put their names to GetUp's petition since the weekend, calling on Senators to delay their vote to allow more time for proper consideration and consultation. This is one of fastest-growing campaigns yet.
According to their update, Labor's Senator Trish Crossin, Greens' Rachel Siewart and Democrat's Andrew Bartlett will be jointly tabling the petition in Parliament Wednesday afternoon around 3.30pm – i.e. as I post this, if things are going to plan.
