Comment on What the open letter didn’t say by Old Maate.

Alcohol restrictions aren’t stopping the youth at night. If we know the cause of the problem why aren’t we addressing the issue.
I think this letter is the only thing they can do (apart from addressing the issues).
They aren’t fooling anyone but, the story was based on facts and I’m sure 99% of locals they would agree with it.
I wish it wasn’t so but it is and not talking about it isn’t going to fix it.
The first warning to give people who visit is … don’t walk around at night, and especially not down the mall or Gap Road. Sad.

Museums: First Nations demand to speak for themselves
There is an old saying “History is written by the victors”. Is true and will always be true in my opinion.

I believe there are always 3 sides to a story, one from the victors, one from the other party and the truth. The truth is rarely known as both sides tend to embellish their stories in some way.

I think it would be novel to have two wings of a museum – one telling the white man’s story and the other telling the indigenous Australians’ story.

On a side note I don’t know why Great Britain has never been held to account for their actions in the landing on this country.
