Comment on 1.6b mining projects inching towards reality by David.

Great news indeed, for FIFO workers.
Territorians from the bush should move to Perth or one of the other cities. You might get lucky in scoring a job in one of those exciting future projects to help contribute towards building your Territory.
Prospects of Territorians making up the 300 construction workforce and 160 operational jobs once completed, would be minimal.
If fair dinkum, put a recruitment office in Alice Springs and Tennant Creek, close to these big projects, not just in the interstate cities and online recruitment.

How much of our relationship with Aborigines is hypocrisy?
Interesting comments Jakub Baranski. Some years ago I was at a world conference in Canada where I met people who had no idea there were Indigenous people in Australia.
You’re correct about the hypocrisy. Some people believe Aboriginal people need to assimilate without those same people with such beliefs learning about or even understanding anything about Aboriginal peoples or culture that thrived for 60,000 years or more in the this country.
It’s always a one way street that people expect Aboriginal people to simply take up something of 200 years or so and just forget about their own of 60,000 years.
After seven years on Aboriginal communities one would expect to learn and understand the wrongs done to Aboriginal people in the past and present, not deny any wrong doing altogether.
Such are the hypocrisies.

One would think Centrecorp would have a moral conscience about building a prison since it’s supposedly a benevolent foundation for the benefit of Aboriginal people, not get into the business of locking them up.
Don’t see much evidence of the Centrecorp benevolent funding happening either.
