The Aboriginal Land Rights (NT) Land Trusts are Corporate Bodies. So …

Comment on Amnesty rhetoric fails to show the way forward for homelands by Paul Parker.

The Aboriginal Land Rights (NT) Land Trusts are Corporate Bodies.
So Traditional Owners are shareholders in their ALR(NT) corporate entities.
Until so treated, held to account, as responsible, expect little change.

Amnesty rhetoric fails to show the way forward for homelands
Amnesty’s Salil Shetty shames NOT the ALRNT landlords. Are his “rent-a-crowd” style comments due to ignorance, intent to mislead, or mischief?
Amnesty’s surprise to find two-bedroom houses with 15 people living in them, others without toilets, showers, or without electricity and water, is not news.
Such is clear consequence from Australian governments’ apartheid approach to these communities.
Such conditions are common where landlords are NOT held accountable!
Amnesty’s condemnation of Australia’s Government efforts to address poverty within their “Indigenous” communities does NOT question the failed apartheid approach, discredited elsewhere, being practiced upon these communities.
Failed housing is the responsibility firstly of the relevant landowners which for these communities are mostly corporations.
Amnesty fails – or refuses – to address the corporate landlords of these communities for their ongoing refusals to act as responsible landowners towards their tenants.
Amnesty appears not to mention the Commonwealth and NT Government’s failure to take these landowner corporations to court for their sub-standard living conditions.
Australians need a full open public inquiry into these corporate landowners, their management boards, concerning gross failures to satisfy public housing standards within their landholdings.
Upgrades need funds, from where? The first source needs be these corporate landlords fixing their properties.
When corporate landlords are NOT prepared allocate their funds to satisfy our Australian and NT public standards of housing then governments need resume, with just compensation, such land as is required to ensure all the essential services are up to our national and NT basic public standards.

NAPLAN a flawed measurement, review needed: COGSO
Clearly Tabby Fudge does not understand the NAPLAN test.
Perhaps neither does COGSO (NT Council of Government School Organisations).
The NAPLAN test is NOT about passing or failing.
The NAPLAN has “No pass” and “No fail”.
The NAPLAN test measures where each student understands the core education principles. Those seeking grade scores for students or teachers clearly need look elsewhere.
This failing, when not addressed, reduces their capacity to learn more complex things they often are expected to learn later.
NAPLAN tests are essential to reduce student fail-to-thrive rates in NT post-primary education.
Each student needs understanding basic disciplines of literacy, numeracy and learning, their NAPLAN result is their learner education license.
NAPLAN tests confirm each understands core basics, certifies each is able to proceed to find their own way further around Australian education where they can improve themselves with further experience.
Many NT students fail their learner education license, yet are still pushed forward.
Later failure to achieve remains a foreseeable result from their failure to understand basic disciplines of literacy, numeracy and learning in Australian education.
NT’s failure to ensure these core education skills achieved ensures many students crash later due lack of core skills to understand enough to advance themselves further.


Police use drone in finding assault suspects
Even smaller drones a great tool for increased police efficiency.
Every rural NT Police stations need a drone with officers trained to use them.


Prof Gerritsen: We got it wrong from the start
Prof Gerritsen correctly claims that residents of the Northern Territory would have a decent future if the Northern Territory was abolished.
Prof Gerritsen incorrectly suggests Commonwealth resumption of control as a solution.
Commonwealth racist tampering caused failure to thrive.
Commonwealth rejected equality of opportunity, instead promoting apartheid and racism.
Commonwealth ensured simple improvements were rejected, as they failed to satisfy Commonwealth apartheid policies, so ensuring each attempt to improve eventually became just another failure caused by racism.
Most failures within the Northern Territory of the Commonwealth directly result from the Commonwealth’s ongoing promotion of racist apartheid policies.
For NT residents the best solution is to rejoin it to the state of South Australia.

Gallery: Gunner sticks with ANZAC Oval
Chief Minister Michael Gunner and his government appear to be adopting approach of Dr Goebbels: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Three men escape from gaol
Low level security for the Cottages is appropriate, indeed important, part of educating and assessing residents.
Video is needed to monitor movements outside theCottages along with various options to respond, even some low level internal monitoring.
While many informally learn to live comfortably in a home, accepting balance of rules and rewards, it is something many inmates failed to learn.
IMHO we need to extend village accommodation approach, with more self-contained single person units, with structured releases for various appropriate daily activities.
Each stage of release onto parole, to full release, needs to encourage living in units, from the Cottage to town or community. Each needs support and follow up.
Each benefit felt contributes to learning and moderation.
