Comment on Behind the anti-intervention tirade: wanting a slice of the action? by Bev.

Yes why isn’t Tangentyere Council accountable for its actions? On top of the comments from the previous person, why is it not checked out about who owns what in Alice Springs. Some of the biggest businesses in town are Aboriginal owned which means they are getting handouts plus have their own corporate income.
Yet those of other nationalities in town with genuine problems are not allowed to get help – told we are lazy when we are sick etc.
I have seen so many examples of the richer Aboriginals taking or hurting the poorer ones – rich ones coming into charity organizations with hundreds of dollars on them and claiming they have not the money to pay for anything.
Yet the poorer Aboriginals with genuine needs are ignored – left out of everything too. Wake up Australia and see what is going on.
Just because they are Aboriginal does not mean they are poor. For the love of God help the poor ones but bring the law down hard on the rich ones. I said before leave out the sentence on the forms asking if one is Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander – just ask do you need help.
Those who can work must work – those who genuinely can’t, help them.
Do-gooders have done so much damage. Also stop punishing those who speak up for the truth.
Up to now any person who speaks the truth about the Aboriginals gets punished or kicked out of town.
PS: I speak from my own experience and because I don’t kowtow to the rich Aboriginals and their friends I have been told to get out of town and am not allowed to even come near the poorer Aboriginals even though I sympathize with them.

Billen’s family: Make telling hotel where you trek mandatory
Funny but what is coming out in these posts is the lack of responsibility of tourist and locals as well. Being in the outback is not a joke – and yes it is dangerous especially for foreigners or people from the coast
People running hotels, caravan parks, other accomodation should give out safety pamplets when people book in, and ask if they understand the pamphlets, even have them sign to say they read them. It would not have to be a long pamphlet.
Also people advertising Alice Springs on Internet sites should be made to put a piece on safety in the outback as an introduction to their sites so people booking on line get this information before they book.

If Alice Springs is ever going to get ahead they need to widen the focus, sure have the Aboriginal things but also other cultural things too. It does not have to be sports orientated but amusement oriented
We need a far better transport system, cheaper food outlets around town, better quality housing, better companies to improve job prospects, companies with well trained people running them and with the right mental attitude.
We need entertainment that are less costly so that the local people can afford to use it frequently when the tourist season is gone.


Fake news, nukes & climate change: two minutes to midnight
The idea is to be prepared but what are we prepared for?
War, climate change, earthquakes, food shortages (remembering we are 1500 kms from the nearest big town).
If war or a nuclear calmity come, do we have shelter that will protect us?
If drought or heat waves come, where do we get our water from? It won’t matter about race or colour. It will happen to all
If we don’t do it now then when these things happen there will be no answers for anyone, and the groaning and gnashing of teeth mentioned in the bible just might happen within our lifetime.

If they want a culturally appropriate site what do they suggest as the site?
Do they own this site themselves or are they pushing others out?
Also, the economics of the proposal need to be considered – is it in the best position to be easily accessed by the customers (tourists)? If it is that will make money for them.
Tourists can see Aboriginal things all over Australia so you need to consider, is this is going to draw the crowds from other places?
Things like what ammenities are around the proposed site and is the site going to have a historic angle written so everyone can know why the site was proposed.
However the big draw card will be ease of access and parking for the travelling tourists.
