How much tax payers monies going to be wasted again …

Comment on Funding announcements flow for ‘Stronger Futures’ in Aboriginal communities by Janet Brown.

How much tax payers monies going to be wasted again to fix nothing. The Feds can give land to the NT government and pay for head works. In all major towns outside of Darwin. Not city support and not race based. Spend the cash closing town camps and bring them into suburbia. The Feds need to put an end to their segregation policies and procedures. Stop the rot. Take a stand – the money they are burning is tax payer money. Our voice needs to be heard. And when building in Alice only Alice trades. All builders get equal share of work load. We don’t need imports like Carey. Money to support each town. Wow, what a Territory. What a great place to be and live. But that will be a pipedream if our new council and Territory members in Alice don’t fight for it. Don’t be scared to ask for your share. It is your right. Not individually. But as a community. You don’t ask you don’t get.

Funding announcements flow for ‘Stronger Futures’ in Aboriginal communities
We have at this time excess of 1500 people from the communities in Alice. Why? Because they want to live in Alice. We are in crisis. We need accommodation urgently in Alice. So, Bob, what are you saying? That you don’t want them in Alice Springs – you support back to country? That’s right, you know what they want. Or is it they are not wanted in your back yard? The same racist comments that support segregation at all levels. So, yes, Bob, I want housing and other support in Alice. In Alice springs everyone is welcome. What I don’t want is segregated areas like town camps. No more race based policies. No more race based government spending. NO MORE SEGREGATION. All of what you spoke of is already in communities – basic needs are addressed. What is not addressed is people leaving communities to make Alice home.

Anzac Precinct: govt declines to play ball, confusion reigns
Thank goodness for the NT Government finally standing by the project and the work will commence. This too and fro has dragged on for too long. I applaud the minister for her strong stand and commitment to Alice Springs and its future.

National Aboriginal gallery: Town Council’s action clear as mud
This entire talk fest is due to lack of understanding. The oval is not going to be built on. It is going to be enhanced as a public space for events and activities.
The gallery will go on the school site [which is] NT Government land.
The community needs to step up against this protest that continues to promote lies and misinformation to support their negativity, an attack by a few against the best interest of the town.
If this project was to encroach on the oval I would find it necessary to get more info and I may be a no voter.
The community’s voice should be heard by council elected members. Why are they being lead away from facts by negative protests based on deliberate misinformation to support their abuse of community interest?

Four councillors walk out of tonight’s Town Council meeting
A walk out for 10 minutes. That is what a parent demands for a child behaviouing petulantly.
Our elected members have shown their childish side with this behaviour.
Petulant behaviour left only adults in the chamber.
How can we the residents really see any maturity in our current council?

Gallery: Gunner sticks with ANZAC Oval
YD. The ground the old high school sits on is not your oval. The gallery is being built on that land. There is no building on the oval.
I am so concerned for the logic of the protesting few. The oval is not mine or yours.
It is council public property. For everyone.
The school is going and a new building being built. The gallery. Please think about your protest before yell to loudly. The school grounds are not the oval.

Indigenous gallery location done and dusted, says Lambley
I have spoken also to many people and they support Anzac as the location. As stated it is going on the land of the old high school.
A meeting at council and public consultation. It is government land. They do not have to consult with anyone.
When it comes to including the oval for open area then that is a need for MOU. Basic logic. The building is going on the government land. Now let’s all settle down and deal with facts.
