Comment on Anzac Oval: Minister won’t rule out compulsory acquisition by Evelyne Roullet.

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!

Megafauna museum: Locals outnumber tourists
Because I am very curious about all sorts of statistics I rang the museum and asked how those figures are created.
I was told: “We simply ask people if they are locals or visitors.”
Interesting, as I have never been asked.


Megafauna museum: Locals outnumber tourists
Overseas 975; Alice Springs 3279; domestic tourists 1214 with “NT other” (363), Victoria (229) and NSW (225) topping the list.
How were those numbers are worked out?
[ED – They were supplied by the museum.]


Move School of the Air to Anzac High building
Great idea. Excellent for the tourists who do not have a car and or cannot afford a tour bus.

@TJ: What happens when they talk about sacred sites and cultural issues concerning the women?
In traditional Anangu society, men and women have distinct but equally important roles, performing specific tasks that benefit the whole community.
There are male sacred sites (men’s business) which are forbidden to women and women’s sacred sites (women’s business) which are forbidden to men.
National Park Management Plan 2020: The Working Together painting by Jennifer Taylor Uluru-Kata Tjuta has a central circle representing the park.
The twelve seated figures are the members of the Board of Management: Four pairs of male and female Anangu (the brown) and four Piranpa (the white).
So could you explain your comment regarding Barb?


Taxpayer funded firm sends woman bush, unprepared
@ Local 1: I am in total agreement. Ming Lai has a case: Employers have rights and responsibilities regarding workplace health and safety. A duty of care exists to provide for the protection to the health, safety and welfare of workers and others within a workplace.
An employers’ responsibility includes:
• Ensuring workers receive sufficient information, instruction and training in the work that the worker may be required to perform.
• Enabling the worker to perform the work without risk to the health and safety of the worker, or any other person.
