Comment on On youth prisons: grandmothers, reformers, revolutionaries by James T Smerk.

I commend these women on speaking out. However I don’t think their plan would work, don’t get me wrong I would love it if it could work! Why can’t we build a purpose-built location (on country), not prison, more boarding house for kids to learn and develop skill with elders talking and teaching.

I would like to see more training/coaching for parents or soon to be parents on their responsibilities and help getting them permanent housing to bring up their families in a stable way.

It’s a fact that if you turn your back on modern society’s ways and language you are essentially turning your back on prospering and your generations’ chances to come also.

I also believe you should have to be Aboriginal or part to sell any Aboriginal art works in Australia, it’s their art and should be their profits.

I could go on forever but that’ll do…

I agree with John. This kind of talk helps no-one.


Bottle shop cops ‘security guards, paid for by the taxpayer’
I’ve been saying that for years. Bottle shops make enough profit, hire your own security guards.
It’s the same for licenced premises, they should be responsible for ensuring their general area is safe too! Not just inside their buildings. You assist in causing a problem you should be part of the clean up.
