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

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.

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.

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.

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.
