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

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.

CLC members want forensic probe into their organisation
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.

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.

I agree with Mabel. GO back NORTH.
Lhere Artepe since it was taken over by the so called new Acting CEO and directors even themselves do not what goes on.
Some directors saying a new $80,000 plus Toyota for the acting CEO was never passed through the directors of Lhere Atepe.
The old 4×4 was given to a director of Untuye when it should be for the use of every estate group for meetings. NEVER.
Lhere Artepe should be the leaders in dealing with the crime spree that is happening. It is happening again. This so called native title organisation was formed to help all Arunta people and not the chosen few.
ALL ABOUT NEPOTISM and mates on the so-called board. This is not the only black organisation on the way it is run – they are all the same.
I shudder to see when these people get hold of the moneys handed out by the Government in the near future.
The Government should do a investigation on all the organisations – YEARLY – to see how the money is spent.
WHAT A JOKE. These so called traditional men when they speak to people they stab each other in the BACK.


Tom Cleary: Cattle man with a huge smile
I first remember this gentleman when I was a young boy when he visited the Gap Cottages.
He would come every time when in town to say hello and sit with his mates.
I would run into this smiling, gentle man in town these later years shake his hand and sit with him.
A quiet man whom I will never forget.


Cr Satour wants answers on ‘verbal abuse & violence threat’
Invited, I attended a council meeting months ago. Jacinta one end of the table, Catherine on the other.
From the time the meeting started these two girls were at each other, ignorant of the other Aboriginal people visitors and councillors in the room.
It’s all about themselves not caring for the town. All through this the mayor sat and said nothing when he should have intervened.
The meeting was about homeless children, getting them off the streets, protecting them from violence.
Now if our children saw this, the way two grown people act, what would be going through their minds?Are they jealous of each other being on the council, or who is the best singer of the two?
Grow up, you are there for the town and the people, not yourselves.


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.
