Comment on ‘Anzac Oval not for sale’: govt under pressure on gallery plans by Kathy.

Why is it so hard for the Government to realise that the Alice Springs people want their sacred site left as it is?
This site was the camping ground for the soldiers going up to Darwin in WW2 to protect Australia. The town’s people chose and built this this site for their local games every weekend: Rugby, cricket, the school athletic days, and many more that the people of Alice have already mentioned.
Plus the planning people have not considered many other features that happen on this sacred site.
The Totem Theatre, the Community Centre, both have been overlooked in the design of the area.
This is Alice Springs residents’ Sacred Site, so like other sacred sites please leave it well alone.

National Aboriginal gallery: Town Council’s action clear as mud
Why is no one listening to the people of Alice Springs? Selective hearing or cannot read the writing on the wall?
We have two terrific sites that already accommodate Aboriginal Art, why have a third?
Plus the NT Government cannot pay for the opening and full use of Darwin’s new hospital. Put the money to this better use and let all Territorians share this money that the government seem to allocate for the art gallery.


Council poll says ‘no’ to gallery at Anzac Oval
Why are not the pollies and their so-called public servants reading what the people of Alice Springs are answering in the polls?
Which is Yes, to the Gallery but NO to the Anzac Oval site.
How can this government even think of all this money for the art centre when they cannot fund the brand new hospital in Darwin?


Coniston Massacre remembered
Besides being a tragic event for both parties in the attack of the white settlers and the fight with the Aborigines, all is part of the past, not a blame game for the future generations as this is being made into and publicised.
No one was in the right and we should learn from the past mistakes and move on, not wallow in the past.


Girl taken to hospital after bashing at Yirara College
With staff not allowed to discipline students or set guidelines in behaviour of the students, students can do anything and the teachers’ hands are tied.
If students can disobey and treat staff as their servants, nothing will change.
Look at the pampering that goes on with these students who know the rules and still misbehave.
What are you teaching them in respect?


ANZAC Oval art gallery good for Mall traders: Chamber
Big ideas but short term results.
The Todd Mall is dead and with the online buying and the cost of rent in the Mall, I cannot see traders flocking to the Mall unless the government has sweet talked big companies with money to open their business here.
