Where to now for council and Stuart statue?
A couple of simple questions.
Do (some at least) landowners have no trespassing signs? Would they try to enforce that message or is it OK to ignore the sign and set up camp?
The land that was available for sale was originally made available by the Crown, who did the Crown purchase it from? Do they have a bill of sale?
The really tricky question is when does the past become too far back in time for it to be relevant today?
I would really like an answer to that question. Is it one day, a week, a year? What I mean is, if I steal something from you today, and I still have it tomorrow, does that mean its fair, that its mine now?
After all its in the past now. Time for you to get over it. Personally, after all the hard work I do trying to pay my mortgage, I would be very upset if someone came along and said sorry piss off that’s mine now.
Can anyone answer these questions for me?
Also I think looking back over the past is a good idea, it allows you to see some of the mistakes that we all inevitably make, we can take action to correct those mistakes or at least learn from them and start to build a stronger more equitable future.
We won’t learn anything if we take no time to look back over our actions, review them, recognise and accept our mistakes and look for ways to do things better.
I think today, the world we live in, our society and its wealth and also many of its social problems are a product of the past.
I don’t think they just miraculously appeared here this morning.

Often I think that when people respond to a discussion with abuse and anger, when they can’t respond in a respectful manner, it is because they are feeling shamed or guilty, or actually identify with the argument but don’t want to admit it.
I think particularly landowners fit this scenario. I’ve seen the no trespassing signs. I expect they are prepared to back those signs up with whatever means are at their disposal.
Should someone come along with more firepower, and force them off that piece of country, I know that they would feel pretty much the same as the old people did when this happened to them.
Their children would probably carry that pain and anger too. So really we are all on the same page, we all bleed red.
It’s heartening to know this really, and I have empathy for them, I understand the fear and worry they may have.

Blah, blah, blah. Each of us has the right to free speech, and people who wish to live in and help make a democracy work, will respect that and listen carefully to the views of others. Try to understand those views and look for a way to work together.
To disrespect and disregard or not consider the views of others is not the way to build a healthy and successful democracy. We have to share our future and to do that, I believe we have to share our past.
We need to look carefully at our history, from all angles. The colonisation of Central Australia brought a lot of good but also a lot of pain to the people who once owned this country.
If we want to walk together and build a strong and healthy future for all the community, we need to respect the feelings and viewpoints of all in that community. People need to be able to feel safe about expressing their viewpoint and be able to discuss it in a calm, respectful and honest manner.

Independents now ineffective?
It seems the independents are being a lot more effective in standing up for their community than either the government or the so called opposition.


Anzac Oval will be site for gallery: Gunner
I think many of these pollies today are not so worried about being re-elected, particularly Gunner, Wakefield etc as they have probably lined up jobs with the fracking industry or elsewhere.
It seems the only way to explain some of the ridiculous things they do.
When did Giles start work for Gina Rinehardt, before or after the election? This government is already working for the gas industry rather than the citizens.

Meanwhile the Minister for Families is helping destroy families by talking apparently to only one of the apmereke-artweye and ignoring all the rest of the family. All apmereke-artweye or kwetungurle should be involved and consulted with, listened to, respected etc.

“It is critical that they are partners to the project, whether it is one owner for the site or not because there is a range of issues.”
One thinks it would be critical for traditional owners to be partners too, not feeling alienated and disrespected as they are now and as are many in the broader community.
There are a range of issues and people that the government are choosing to ignore.


Boundless Arrogance, says Opposition
Boundless arrogance just like the CLP. Vote independent.
