Comment on 1968, when revolution was everybody’s business by Evelyne Roullet.

Russel, I agree with Charlie, because 1968 in France and Germany had nothing to do with the Beatles and their songs.
It follow Daniel Cohn-Bendit’s activism.
In 1968 the hope was to change the world, like the Bolshevik Revolution.
While a youth revolt became general in the West — from anti-Vietnam protests in the United States to the Rolling Stones in swinging London and finally the Baader-Meinhof gang in West Germany — France was where the protests of the baby-boom generation came closest to a real political revolution, with 10 million workers on strike, and not just a revulsion against stifling social rules of class, education and sexual behaviour.

1968, when revolution was everybody’s business
Charlie you bring back memories of May to July 1968: It was the time when people were not guided by money and material possessions like today, family values and human rights were important.
My favorite slogans were:
Élections, piège à con (Elections, a trap for idiots).
Cela nous concerne tous (This concerns all of us.)
Leon Zitrone the radio foreign broadcasting services of Radiodiffusion-Télévision Française told the public not to trust Televised news as they were edited to please the rulers of the day. (Nothing changed obviously)
It was a turning point in my life as we decided to leave Europe for Australia, the land of the free: God bless Australia, The land of the free.
Here in Australia, we treasure love and liberty.
Our way of life, all for one, one for all.
(Australian songwriter and radio personality Jack O’Hagan.)
Alas it seems that 50 years after my days of protesting are not over. SAVE ANZAC OVAL.

Gallery: Council did not say boo
Well said Louise and I believe that all involve in NT Government and Town Council should read the book of Kathleen Kemaree Wallace, Listen deeply.
Deep listening means to hear every dimension of the other person, both what is said as well as what is implied.
It means to hear the words and the emotions underneath them and to hear the general disposition and mood of the person: To hear all of it.
Kathleen is the senior artist for the art centre and over the last 20 years has mentored and supported other women artists and young women.
She is internationally regarded and her artworks can be found in many major Australian Collections.
Two years ago, over 100 non-Indigenous people from across Australia gathered at the Edge of the Sacred conference at White Gums at Honeymoon Gap, outside of Alice Springs, to hear Miriam Rose Ungunmerr-Baumann and others speak about the spiritual road to reconciliation with Aboriginal people.
Dr Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr (AO) is an Aboriginal elder from Nauiyu (Daly River), where she served for many years as the principal of the local Catholic primary school. She is a renowned artist, activist, writer and public speaker.
Rather than speak of treaties and politics, Miriam Rose, shared the concept of quiet meditation, an Indigenous practice that her people use to find out who they really are, their purpose, and where they are going.
Obviously none of our politicians took much notice.


Anzac Oval: Minister won’t rule out compulsory acquisition
Mr McCarthy: “People should be reminded that this is a national gallery, this is a national Indigenous art gallery, with national and international significance …” a new international hotel will be needed for the people flocking from “across the globe” to see the gallery …
How can you talk of a national Aboriginal art gallery?
You should be aware that Aborigines for cultural reasons do not want the gallery on Anzac Oval!
The cultural centre was their idea in the first place, and you should respect their culture or YOUR gallery is plain and simple bullshit (excuse my French).
A new international hotel? Where? Melanka site? Which deal have you already made with an international foreign company?
Majority of us have friends and relatives overseas; some in the arts; with the help of Facebook, Twitter etc … the words will go around that Alice Springs does not respect Aboriginal culture, have contempt for the elders and custodians and this gallery is a money making exercise for SOME!


Gallery at Anzac: Council has no position, says Deputy Mayor
Bravo Eli, my comment on gutless candidates does not apply to you. And let other councillors show true colour!


Anzac Precinct: govt declines to play ball, confusion reigns
Maybe Janet, but what about the charade, pretending to consult?
What is underlying in this? Mates having already a contract? Promises being made to big companies?
Let the government come clean on the subject.
All I know for certain that next elections, be it government or council, I will not go to the polling boots. I prefer pay the fines rather to vote for gutless candidates.
“When politicians make promises, they create a rod for their own backs. They create a moral obligation to keep them, but that obligation does not obliterate or override their prior and remaining moral obligation to act in the best interests of their constituents and the country as a whole. If a promise they have foolishly made conflicts with that moral duty, they should break their promise.”

Louise: My thoughts exactly from day one.
The museum in the Mall is already selling toys and books which have no relation to the site.
It is normal, money must be made like all other tourist attractions have done, with the exception of the Reptiles Center.
