Comment on CLC wants say about Indigenous voice to Parliament by Number 19.

Good luck with that, CLC. We need a voice to Parliament, for sure.
The trouble with a democracy is majority rules and unfortunately the majority is on the east coast, the voters in Sydney, Melbourne etc have more power to decide what happens in Central Australia than we do. Darwin also.
And unfortunately most of the people over there, including the pollies and bureaucrats, have no idea what’s going on out here.

Council shoots Anzac precinct gallery down in flames
Steve I think you’re right. Both completely arrogant and plain stupid just like the previous government. It’s time we stopped voting for either of these inept parties.


Anzac precinct art gallery: Native title issues unresolved
The government in its latest report has admitted to speaking to just one, apmereke-artweye.
There are others.
Also, there is no mention of any consultation with kwetungurle.

But this is not about respect. It is about exploitation.


Gallery should be all set to go
“If developed properly.” Jeff, that’s the thing this has not been developed properly.
There has been no respect for locals. The government chose the site before any of us knew about the plans and has been trying to bully us ever since.
People travelling from OS or interstate are not going to travel all that way and only go to the gallery.
They will visit other attractions and the town centre wherever the gallery is.
Custodians have been developed, ignored, avoided or hand selected.
Two surveys including the governments own have shown a majority for the gallery but against the Anzac site.
There has been no rational reasoning put forward as to why Anzac is the only possible place.
They have no business case, they have no money no idea and not a lot of support.


Voter banned from Parliamentarian’s office
What’s the point of voting for a Labor Party member if they don’t get to represent my interests on an important issue? Who were the eight or so who voted for fracking? How come they get to decide? Why didn’t my member get to represent me, and which way would you have voted, Chansey?


NT pipeline to make substantial contribution, says industry
By 2030 a world class gas hub will most probably be one that is working for the environment and humanity not against it.
