Are Mr Shetty and Amnesty International being sold a camp …

Comment on Comment: Ethnic cleansing … what next? by Hal Duell.

Are Mr Shetty and Amnesty International being sold a camp dog masquerading as a utopian pup?
I clearly remember a public meeting held two years ago at Araluen at which Mrs Kunoth-Monks, speaking from the stage, called for the return of “feather foot” or “feather boot”. As I understand it, he was the enforcer within traditional Aboriginal law.
What does Mrs Kunoth-Monks say today? Does she still call for feather foot’s return? Would his return include the spearing of transgressors? If so, must a transgressor have reached a minimum age before this punishment could be exacted?
Where do Mr Shetty and Amnesty International stand on this issue of extrajudicial punishment, especially if it includes the spearing of men (and / or women?) still young enough to be considered minors in the eyes of Australian national law?

One reason, perhaps the biggest reason, why government authorities are scared shitless to do anything about the kids running wild in Alice is they fear being tarred with the “stolen generations” brush.
Why the Indigenous authorities do nothing is anyone’s guess. Mine is that they are scared of them, or scared of the payback that any action on their part would generate.


Council poll says ‘no’ to gallery at Anzac Oval
Multiple devices? Multiple addresses? Sounds like Putin did it.


SA budget allocation may put paid to Alice gallery: Higgins
The way to reinvigorate the CBD is not through investing in an art gallery or a cultural centre, but by investing in people.
Build attractive modern flats and populate the area. I understand there are no zoning impediments to doing that.
A skate park at the river end of Parson’s Street would breathe life into many who just hang around, and they hang around because it still is our CBD. We’ve just made a mess of it is all.


Gallery: What we need to know before we spend a cent

With a nod to Russell Guy, and now the Melanka site comes into play. That is, if we’re talking about an art gallery, and not a Cultural Centre.
This could be what we’ve been looking for.


Anonymous donation doesn’t fix conflict of interest for council
It is a very good thing Cr Banks has done. Good for her own image as a Councillor of transpanency, and good for ASTC.
I’m thinking of those councils in trouble over in Queensland, and I wonder how much of that trouble might have been avoided if every council employee, whether elected or hired, had known from their first day that there were NO free lunches.
I think, and I like to think, that our Council is without reproach. Let’s keep it that way.
