Comment on Housing mess as community fights land council over lease by Paul Parker.

There are legal responsibilities under the Commonwealth’s Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976 [ALRNT].
The Amoonguna Aboriginal Land Trust appears to be the rightful owner of the land, with authority and responsibility for the land and all activities occurring upon the land – except where responsibility has been transferred under lease, or in accordance with Commonwealth’s ALRNT.
The Amoonguna Aboriginal Land Trust needs under ALRNT provide its instructions concerning leases to the Central Land Council (CLC) who then provides directions, thus leases.
Amoonguna community requires reasonable duration leases for security of tenure to be able to manage their own community.
Without such leases Amoonguna ALT community residents need to file suit against Amoonguna ALT and the CLC (property agent) for their failure to maintain their housing to basic acceptable standards, and for their refusal to issue reasonable leases.
The CLC and Land Trusts regularly refuse to issue reasonable leases so as to avoid their accepting responsibility, with refusal to transfer any responsibility, so as to maintain tyrannical, abusive and extortionate authority over all residents.

Salt is a corrosive, spread of such corrosion is found with increased salt in the air, as those living closer to salt water soon learn.
We need greater public understanding of effects of salt, how its effects can be multiplied by inappropriate metals or flooding.
We need clearer explanations of the procedures to reduce, and resolve possible corrosion issues over several thousand years.
Even several years appears too long for many politicians to consider.

I do not support uniformed police being stationed at take-away alcohol outlets.
It is the responsibility of licensees within their premises to ensure compliance with requirements as set out in the legislation.
If licensees find it difficult to provide adequate security during certain times they need be temporarily closed during those times.
I support police attending to charge individuals and those licensees who breach banning provisions.

Such logic supports amputating a leg because a toe is sore.
Most persons on Centrelink do manage themselves on their limited budgets, albeit with difficulty.
Restricting their capability is unlikely to improve things.
The problem remains government focus on racist tag games.
Without racial filters everyone can concentrate on actual problems, not grossly over-rated racist symptoms.
