@ Domenico Pecorari: Your comments are right. Also, most local governments around Australia fly the Aboriginal flag alongside the Australian flag and their own local government and state flags.
However, there is still an element of fear of the truth in this country, that Aboriginal people are the original inhabitants of Australia, a denial, a continuing oppression of the people and that fact.
You can have every other nation in the world in this country, but it does not mean their flags should be raised as well. The fact is, they are not Aboriginal people of this land.
Cr. Satour sought support of Apmerreke-artweye, the right people of the Aboriginal community, to help find ways to address problems rampant in Alice Springs committed by Aboriginal people.
There is still hope that the council may support that initiative. Perhaps they just need to be a little more objective once they get over their own importance in the scheme of things, to think and act outside the box.

And Fred, Aboriginal people have constantly been subject to all sorts of social experiments and are still subjected to and you want more.
Come up with realistic solutions mate, not racist rubbish all the time.
The Aboriginal voice has been killed off by government policies and what we see is a result of hopelessness felt by Aboriginal people saddled with the rubbish CDP among other things, that causes more hardship than good, enforced by a pompous, out of touch Minister of Indigenous Affairs.


NT cops handcuffed, says Opposition Leader
If any budget cuts should occur, it should be within the top heavy executive positions in government.
There are too many highly paid fat cats on $100,000 to $200,000 and maybe more, positions often offered to interstaters who know bugger all about the NT.
What exactly these highly paid people achieve for the NT is questionable. This is money denied to police, health, education etc, etc.
