Comment on Court placing itself above the community? by Evelyne Roullet.

John, it is not my stereotypical categorisation but one made by Indigenous http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-05-05/dont-call-them-disadvantaged/8501744 Please read, before judging.
Those who know me could tell that I am non-judgemental (this include Aborigines) and I am not trying to redefine “what it is to be Indigenous”. Raised in Africa with mixed Italian, French, Turc blood flowing into my body and my brain, I can appreciate all cultures.

Court placing itself above the community?
Quote: “The court has also long recognised ‘the continuing stewardship of those people over the various lands in Central Australia’ and ‘the social, economic cultural and other disadvantages to which Aboriginal peoples have been and continue to be subjected’.” End of quote.

‘Save Anzac Oval’ motion defeated
Fair comment Kevin, but why no supporters, no speakers in favour for the use of the oval came last time? I would have been a very interesting debate.
The against had very good arguments but I am still waiting for the other side to express good points other than “it will bring thousands of visitors each day … it will be the best in the world … it will be good for the CBD.
The CBD, to attract families, needs well developed Todd River banks promenades, a large play ground on the Melanka site like the one in Araluen, and some apartments.


‘Save Anzac Oval’ motion defeated
Thank you to Crs Eli Melky, Catherine Satour, Jimmy Cocking and Marli Banks for your support and respect to the wishes of the traditional custodians.
Maybe the Mayor can explain why at the commencement of the meeting he acknowledged traditional custodianship of the land.
Normally this acknowledgement pays respect to the traditional custodians, ancestors and continuing cultural, spiritual and religious practices of Aboriginal people.
Further, it provides an increasing awareness and recognition of Australia’s Indigenous peoples and cultures.
Obviously not last night. It was just words with no meaning in fact in my eyes it was an insult to the Aborigines present.


‘Save Anzac Oval’ motion defeated
Quote: “Mayor Ryan had earlier advanced a similar argument, that the gallery built on the old Anzac high school site would send a great message to young people involved in antisocial behaviour, make them feel wanted, and build connections in the community.”
May be or they will happily vandalise it if their elders told them that this gallery should not be there.

Billy de Goat and James T Smerk: I know and understand, but I still think it is not normal and sad. It used to be enough to write after our name “Opinions are my own and not the views of my employer”. A pseudo means: “I have an opinion but not if it means that I get fired.”


Crunch time in Anzac Oval standoff
If the art centre / gallery is built on Anzac Oval, it will join the list of disappointing tourist attractions across the globe.
One I am particularly familiar with is the site of the pyramids in Egypt.
Travellers moaned that the Pyramids of Giza site can be seen from Pizza Hut, and are so close to the noise and chaos of the city (I could see them from my hotel).
They are flanked on three sides by the roads and neighbourhoods of Giza.
The same goes for the Great Sphinx.
Most of the photos taken of the pyramids in Giza are from a certain angle or from fairly close up, making them seem like they’re in the middle of the Egyptian desert.
In reality however, they’re really on the edge of the sands and practically in a few people’s backyards.
Welcome to Alice Springs, the Aborigines’ Art Center of Australia with no atural backdrop (I wonder what will be the scenic photo used for publicity?) but supermarkets, Plaza, coffee shops, war memorial, pubs.
