Comment on 2022 AD – What we could hope for in Indigenous affairs, apart from the odd miracle by Janet brown.

Wow. Some good ideas and yet the same racist speech that has supported segregation all this time. If you want equal rights then paternalism needs to stop now. When you discuss the Centrelink issue please explain to non aboriginal welfare recipients why aboriginal people are treated to an open door on income from other avenues. I did raise this issue with our pollies and was told it just is and will not change. [Some persons] on the dole at royalties time (twice a year) pick up over $300,000 plus and still get the dole. Anyone else non aboriginal you would lose your welfare. I am not happy listening to the racist propaganda that tells part of the story and fails to address the facts as they really are. Racism will continue to exist. Money is directed to ensuring aboringals never obtain equality. And that equality comes from equality under law and living under the rules as everyone else. The beginning of that would start with the closing down of all government funded organizations that operate to promote segregation.

The millions and the misery
Jen, how many failed programs have you been employed with?
This is not about giving young people a voice this is about giving young people a safe space.
With people who care about their safety. Not a government program that employees robots who perform for the wages.
This project is about people supporting kids and ensuring their safety. Relax. Revive and not be throw on the street after the place closes.
Empathy and real compassion will be the base of volunteers.
Not a government position in a high needs spot. People who care. That is why we will succeed.


The millions and the misery
The perfect location.


Memo Club for 24/7 youth centre?
I really am not surprised by the responses by people who have been part of these failed programs.
And still are part of them. You all yell loudly the amount of agencies who are doing something.
Yet our you problems continue. These places are all individual pieces of the puzzle. Never to join up and offer real security and safety. Peace meal titbits.
What we are dissucissing is a community centre that is open and operating 24/7. Were kids have a place. The current supports while well meaning miss the big picture. Kids want security and safety. Couch surfing is not what I would call safety.
This will be a place to call into to relax. Get a feed and relax. Similar to a home environment one that will give opportunities to kids to make life choices on their voice.
I watched for the first time last night blind side. What a story. A story to reinforce the need for a place and people to care for our kids.
Those people who want to pat themselves on the back and protect themselves is the real shame of failing our kids.
We are taking a stand to provide safety and security to these kids. And you want to knock us for standing up for these kids. Really. I really do not care about your failures. I care about the kids.


Memo Club for 24/7 youth centre?
We need to open asap. We need showers, toilets, kitchen open areas. All this is in the Memo.
The Memo is the only place in town. I ask Donna to please support this. This is for our kids.
We hope to raise enough money to build a purpose centre. Right now we need the Memo club for this project to go ahead. For the sake of our local kids and the community.
Donna, we ask that you find time to talk to Steve and Congress work with us for the sake of our town. And their future. Please.
