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…

This should be a wake call to this Government. If this situation had ended in the worst way there would have been vigilante groups looking for justice.
Wake up government, don’t let this town fall further down the drain.
I want Mr Gunner to respond how this should be handled, then ask him if it was his daughter, does he think he is doing enough?

Is there a description of the alleged offenders?

Large number of cars vandalised at Araluen
For such a big event to occur you would think the Government would have come out and made a statement… no just crickets…chirp chirp…


The Mushroom
Someone needs to remind the Government about their requirement to be transparent in their actions. It’s pretty obvious Gunner will have 28,000 (Alice’s population) people not re-electing him next election. It can’t come quick enough.


No youth hub at Newland, but it’s not the end of the story
Who would want a place for troubled youth to hang out in their back yard? Not surprised the people in the area didn’t want it.
