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.

New proof that Aborigines have been in Oz 65,000 years
It is good to see, the Mirarr people had the first and final say on the dig at this site through their own organisation, the Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation.
No mention appears of Land Council.
It demonstrates LC is not needed. What a great discovery by the archaeological team in partnership of the Mirarr people.

@ Jaap Vogel. Agree with your comments.

Water in the Territory is more a precious commodity than gas. When the water runs out we will all be heading to town because we can’t drink gas.

Company refutes new allegations on jobs for the dole scheme
@ Anagram. Stop using Aboriginal culture as an excuse for not doing what you’re funded to do. This is another Federal Government failed social experiment. So on it goes.

CAAMA radio: questions on Hampton appointment
@ John Bell: I am well aware of your time in ATSIC, Mr Bell. I was there from beginning to end too. And I’m suggesting it was unfortunate that ATSIC was disbanded.
Certain elements of ATSIC were corrupt, not the complete whole of ATSIC.
In comparison then, our white governments must be models of excellence, not even a sniff of wrong doing or corrupt behaviour. My goodness!
They only forced the Intervention on Territory Aboriginals, making Aboriginal people powerless, voiceless and captive – took away every shred of dignity.
Yes, another white government inspired experimental failure.
More than a blot on the integrity of Territory Aboriginal people I’d say, that will take a long time to recover from, if at all, if allowed to.
No more government inspired social experiments, please. Finally, I never suggested ORIC was corrupt – just a paper tiger. Strewth mate!
