We, the Bray and Tickner family of 16 Mile Outstation …

Comment on CLC members want forensic probe into their organisation by Russell Bray.

We, the Bray and Tickner family of 16 Mile Outstation (since 2012), have been on the Tangentyere work program for the same period, for which Centrelink provides the money.
On Monday Lesley rang Tangentyere admin to have a bobcat picked up, which he had worked on over the week end.
The person told him no as Central Land Council have blocked 16 mile from the work program. According to Mathew he was told the police maybe removing us from our rightful home land.
Once again Central Land Council have come through the back door not informing the CEO who knew nothing about it and the board to have this passed.
This is racial discrimination against our family. Yesterday (Tuesday) we had a meeting with Walter Shaw, who told us that Tangentyere is there for the people and not Central Land Council.
Walter told us Central Land Council tried it with Amoonguna whom they service as well.
Who do these people think they are?
Bob Gosford (a lawyer from Central Land Council) on the 19th had a meeting with the executive.
I believe the CLC executive board to be acting illegally, because Ngala Kunoth Monks was nominated by three people from the Mbantwe Group of Lhere Artepe and not the full nine directors of Untulye and Ilpme, for these people had trespass notices put on them by the mother.
We were on the Agenda but not invited.

Erwin: I praised the man up for not siding with CLC like the rest of the Aboriginal Corporations Ingerreke, Lhere Artepe, Ilpma and the NT Government who receive government money and not going to the outstations. Maybe I should not have mentioned Amoonguna. I do not know.

Well said June, more of it. Great. ho owns the land?
The other week I saw the CEO of Land Management NT Government in the office of birth deaths and marriages.
The conversation was about a caveat to put on the 16 Mile outstation to stop Central Land Council kicking my family off.
The CEO told me that a caveat would be useless because no one owns the Freehold Land. Central Land Council is just the caretaker of the land trust which comes under the name of Thenge Lhere which is a corporation under ORIC in Canberra and they do not own the land.
The land belongs to all the Aboriginal people from Northern Arunta for the deed is for everyone who has an interest in their ancestors’ land.
So what gives Bob Gosford, lawyer at Central Land Council, the authority to go to an executive meeting with our names on the agenda and not invite us to fight for our rights?
The bit of Stock Route, 4000 hectares, which is part of Burt Plain, belong to the Northern Arunta People for everyone.

About time our people have stood up for themselves after all these years since the Australian government / Central Land Council took over their lives 1976 and ruined the future of all our children.
BEAUTIFUL. LOVE IT. DO NOT STOP. SHOULD THEY THREATEN YOU WITH TAKING YOU TO COURT FOR YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF THE CEO AND ADMINISTRATION.

No plans to stop NATS: Gunner
All to do with money, not the safety and lives of the people. Just goes to show how did these so called safety officers ever get their piece of paper to take the lives of innocent people in their hands.
A safe place Gunner does recon. Not so safe the way the government runs the country.


Land councils acted behind our backs, say pipeline TOs
Let us come together as one and organise a people power meeting and march against the Central Land Council, who are the Government, and show Australia and the rest of the world we care for our ancestors’ land.
Central Land Council talk to the wrong people, and not all the right people, for when they were chasing the land at Victory Downs, Mt. Cavanagh, Mulga Park, Kulgera and Umbreara Stations, meeting at Eagle Bore, my wife and a lot of other people were never invited or picked up to vote for or against what they were doing.


Canberra money for festivals all goes to Top End
Hey people, what a man Nigel No Friends! He is sharing your money that comes out of the ground our ancestors walked and survived on.
You must be thinking what a lovely man, giving our people all this money, not much really when you think of it. People, I need your votes next election!
The only time you see Nigel No Friends and Snowdon is on TV holding some child’s hand and giving back land to the people 40 years later, after taking all the minerals out of the ground.
I have asked before, do these men have Ochre Cards to be hanging around children on Communities? They make the rules – do they abide by them? Like I have said, it is the people power. Vote Snowdon and Nigel out. They have done nothing.

Wakaya people, stick together for it is people power.
David Ross and his white administration, Scullion and Snowdon have ruined Aboriginal lives since 1974, taking our land ruining it, stuffing up our law and culture for our future children.
Where is Francis Kelly and the so called executives who are supposed to be the voice for us?
This is why they, the administration, got rid of Maurie Ryan as chairman for he had education and understood the white cheating ways.
The nine regions were the people that nominated Maurie Ryan as chair and the only people to sack him.
Not David Ross and his lawyer and the way they went about it. Central Land Council put the wrong people on land which caused trouble between our people, and this is what David Ross and the white administration love. Stay as one be strong.


Council partnership in CBD complex seems certain
Leave Flynn church and my old Hartley Street School alone. It has been there before all you people were born and has served its purpose in the past.
Ruining a lovely place such as Flynn lawns where locals sit and enjoy. Should you want to go up one or two stories use the car parks already in existence in Hartlet Street and Stott Terrace.
It would not matter to go two up for we already have a football oval shape ugly looking court house.
The cultural centre could be built on the Melanka site and paid for by the Central Land Council through ABA where black fellow money is kept and of which we see nothing. Through Centrecorp which is part of the Yeperenye Shopping Centre.
Build so all the black corporations can come together and be one. Surely you directors on these boards can organise something for us blackfellas.
Should this happen just think of all our people owning our own art store instead of our people being ripped off like they are today. Just walk down the Mall.
