Comment on Whittling away at sacred sites protection by Dr Wrongo.

Aboriginal Areas Protection Authority prosecuted an organisation 10 years ago for damage to this site while trying to put in a bike path.
Now it seems AAPA think its OK to do further damage to this site against custodians’ wishes.
AAPA called Doris Stuart as one of their main witnesses in that court case, now they avoid talking to her. AAPA seem to have no ethics and are clearly not about protecting Aboriginal areas but rather about trying to find ways around custodians to allow damage to their sites.
Development at any cost.
And while we are on the subject of cost $800,000+ seems a ridiculous amount of taxpayers money to pay for a couple of hundred yards of bike path, when there is a perfectly good bike path running parrallel a hundred yards away. How much of that cash will get into the hands of the gammon custodians?

Whittling away at sacred sites protection
Mr Scambury understands that the proposed removal of this tree is acceptable to custodians but Mr Scambury and AAPA are not consulting with senior custodians.
And what is the Arrernte council thinking.
They were fined for damaging this site now it seems its open slather.

Martin Luther King III ‘disheartened’ by what he saw in Alice
Unfortunately there is very little respect for elders, full stop. Arrernte elders and leaders put a full page ad in the paper inviting people to this re conciliation event, saw no councillors or pollies there. Catherine Satour sent an apology, though.


Problem kids: The whole town must help
Hmmmmm, I think Steve’s idea could be useful depending on how it is implemented.
One thing I think is important is that the staffing should be heavily weighted with people from the demographic for whom it is intended to affect.
Poverty is one of the drivers of antisocial behaviour, more jobs for privileged whitefellas will not address that issue.


‘Government’s secret decision making’
So Mr Gunner is telling us there is no reason to vote for many of the Labor pollies as they won’t be allowed to represent us in important decision making in Parliament. What do we pay them for if they aren’t allowed to represent us?


Where has Cr Melky been all these years?
Cutting welfare may not be so successful as you imagine Mark.
Quite a few people I know have chosen to not take welfare, and hope for help from their families.
It may lead to futher problems, definitely more poverty and all the issues that that brings.


Nine-year-old girl playing in park assaulted
Bring back customary law? The drunken Aboriginal? The offenders are of Aboriginal appearance according to police.
That means they may be Aboriginal or part Aboriginal part European.
Probably the latter, perhaps descended from those nobel white pioneers who fathered many children often with women barely out of childhood, but abandoned most of their children.
Makes sense. Where else would this evil behaviour come from?
